The Christian Way 

The Bible tells us that “in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”. God’s good purpose for all Christians is that we are “conformed to the likeness of his Son”. Christians are to reflect Jesus’ perfection both in their character and in their body. If you have already accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord, then God’s Spirit is already at work in you “to will and to act according to his good purpose”. This purpose will be completed at Jesus’ return.

Scripture tells us that Christians make progress toward becoming like Jesus when they strive to love others as he did. This type of love is called agape. Whenever you do something good for someone deserving or undeserving, you are acting on the power of agape. Christ is both the source and the Christian’s model of agape, for “God demonstrates his own love for us in that: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us”. Christians can love this way because “God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit” (Romans 5:5).

Today, when you use your gifts to make yourself appear superior to others, you are not gaining anything in the Christian life. But when you use your gifts to build others up, you are becoming more like Jesus!

I will show you the most excellent way (1 Corinthians 12:31).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, thanks for your good purpose for me; thanks, Christ, for modelling God’s agape love to me; Holy Spirit, continue to deepen God’s love in me, until I attain Christ’s perfection. In Christ’s name, Amen.
