ABCs of living like Christ



"Let the one who says he abides in Him, walk in the manner in which He walked."  (1 John 2:6 NAS)

Jack Hall, former VT professor and long-time member of BCF, spoke briefly during Sunday announcements about our upcoming conference...   

One of the themes of the upcoming conference is "Living with a Missional Mindset," that is, seeking to live in such a way as to draw people to Christ with every encounter. In other words, emulate Christ.  So, to figure out how well you are doing in that regard, let's go through the alphabet using words that describe Jesus's character or personality, and then assess in your own mind how you measure up....

Amazing/assuring
Bold in testimony
Caring/compassionate
Divine/dependable
Energizing
Faithful
Generous
Holy/helpful
Infallible/immaculate
Just
Kind/source of all knowledge
Loving
Majestic/magnificent
Needed
Omnipotent/omnipresent/omniscient
Powerful/parental
Quiet
Rejuvenating
Savior/shepherd
Triumphant over satan  
Understanding/uniting
Victorious/valiant
Wonderful
X = died on a cross for our salvation
Yahweh/source of youth
Zesty ... because of Jesus we can be "zesty"!
