I have frequently thought to myself that if God fully knows me, then there is no way that He could fully love me. My sin is too ugly, I’ve been too broken, and I’ve wondered too far. The reality is, I couldn’t have been more wrong. The Bible tells me so. One of the many beautiful things about the Gospel is that we are both fully known by God and fully loved by God. That’s true beauty.
What should Christians look like? How should they act? What should they be known for? There are many unique qualities that all Christians should harness as it pertains to living a biblical life, but below are eight things I believe anyone who calls themselves a Christ-follower should adhere to. The Christian life is all about finding true identity in that of Jesus and reflecting an image of his righteous nature.
What’s my purpose? What is God’s will for my life? And how do I know if I’m currently on the right path? These are all questions we’ve once asked ourselves, and I believe the topic of God’s will to be one of the most discussed topics among evangelical Christians as it pertains one’s spiritual journey.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t spend much of my life trying to impress the people around me. Whether in the workplace, my friendships or even at church, I was constantly on guard to try and impress in hopes of finding acceptance. It feels good to be liked by others, but trying to constantly gain approval by everybody is also a game that will keep you on your toes 24/7.
