Do you look like your father?

Do You Look Like Your Father?

Do you look like your father?

Romans 8:16 tells us “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” Since we are God’s children, we need to grow to become more like him – to “look like Him”. Here’s how:

 

Galatians 5:22-23 tells us “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self-control.” This is a perfect check-list and spiritual exercise program for us to become more like our Father. Each day and each week, (i) chose one of the “fruit” to focus on, (ii) pray for understanding, (iii) research the nature of the fruit, (iv) list times and ways that you can display that fruit in your own life, (v) by faith, allow the Spirit to produce that fruit in you in those situations. Review, pray and practice again J
