BECOMING LIKE JESUS
MAY THROUGH AUGUST
get ready to become like jesus
This part of the journey will focus on your personal transformation. Most of us want stronger character and the ability to love more deeply. We want to be a kinder and more patient. We want more self-control and peace in our lives. We can get there if we simply keep moving forward.
Your personal transformation entails cultivating spiritual disciplines like how to meet with God and hear His voice, practicing stillness and quietness - two disciplines that seem lost in today's busy world. You will be challenged to choose an area of growth and focus on it.
Anything worth having is worth working for, so are you ready to dig in? Here are a few places you must stop on this leg of the journey.

fruit of the spirit
how to become more like christ
As you grow in your relationship with Christ, there is certain fruit that your life begins to produce. Just like a tree produces specific fruit when it blossoms, your life will produce specific fruit as you develop and grow in your relationship with Christ.
1 Corinthians 13 defines love as patient, kind, not self-seeking and able to bear all things. Love is not based only on feeling, but the ability to show it to others even when they don't deserve it.
True joy is dependent on who Jesus is rather than being dependent on our circumstances. It is the overflow of the life of God within us.
Biblical peace is more than just the absence of conflict or state of rest. True peace is when we operate from a place of completeness or wholeness without any deficiency or lack.
The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble or suffering without getting angry or upset
The virtue of patience is presented as endurance. It is a quality of self-restraint or of not giving into anger, even in the face of adversity.
The supernatural power posture of our hearts towards people even when they don’t deserve it.
The quality of being morally good or virtuous.
Goodness is godliness.
Goodness can often be seen in our actions, but our hearts must be pure.
Faithfulness is a character trait that combines dependability and trust based on our confidence in God and His eternal faithfulness.
The quality of gentleness is the opposite of harnessing others. Gentle is the quality or state of being tender, mild and calm. Gentleness expresses power with reserve and gentleness; gentle strength
The ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations. A battle between a divided self.
When we define self-control from a spiritual perspective, we can define it as saying no to sinful desires even if it hurts.
2 corithians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
