BECOMING LIKE JESUS
MAY THROUGH AUGUST
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.
Congratulations on making it through the first leg of your journey to Knowing Jesus! We pray you are growing closer to the Lord and gaining a deeper understanding of your faith. This part of the journey will focus on your personal transformation.
At Summer Quest we are “doing life together,” through programs designed to take you on a spiritual journey where you will discover truth for yourself, refresh your relationship with God and explore how to handle real life circumstances. We’re creating an environment where children, teens, millennials and adults can grow together and get connected with others in the body of Christ.
As we take the journey to knowing Jesus, we want you to take the time to get to know the Holy Spirit and the fruits of the Spirit. Through this life-changing work, our goal is that you will begin to walk in the victory found only in Jesus 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.
