Imagine if as the Church we all were more Christ-like:
Praise God that it's possible to become more and more of that kind of Church and individual believer. God has given us the Holy Spirit to be our Helper, to come alongside of us and in us, so we can speak, act and react in a Christ-like manner toward one another, and bear fruit as we live for Him and serve in His power.
When we're "filled with the Spirit" (Eph. 5:18) there isn't room for our old sinful nature to get in the way. Instead, we exhibit the Christ-like traits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (You can read more about being filled with the Spirit in this month's Be-Attitude.)
God knew we couldn't do it on our own. Let's hand the reigns of our lives and churches over to the Holy Spirit!
Yours in His Service,
