You Can Change 3:Holiness

This question in the reflection section of Tim Chester’s book: You Can Change: was particularly significant for my meditations on the chapter.

Think of specific people you consider to be Christlike.  What is it about them that makes them like Jesus?  What is it about them that’s attractive? What’s happened in their life to make them the people they are?  What do they think about themselves?  What do they think about Jesus?

These  are the qualities that stood out for me:

  • Gentleness
  • Humility – as I have thought on this more – this is a huge character trait of godliness.
  • Listeners/learners
  • Love Jesus and His Word
  • Ruled by their convictions not their feelings or circumstances
  • Love people, and people know they are loved and valued when they are with them
  • Servants – lay down their life for others
  • They make much of Jesus and little of themselves
  • Hunger for God

What would you add?
