Be Like Christ--Mind of Christ
I have shared before about how the Nike Ad with Michael Jordan reminds me of how we are to be. The ad tagline was “Be like Mike.” Well, one of the tests we have when we encounter situations and circumstances, in all cases, are that we should be like Christ. We should check the instruction manual, the Bible...God’s Word, and then apply it as Christ would.
To be like Christ is to be a spiritually sensitive man. We should walk through life with a God-consciousness. To be spiritually sensitive is to be in tune with God and learn and know how God would act, talk, and respond to life’s daily situations. So how do we develop this kind of sensitivity?
First off, is to look at and observe God in action in the Bible, our instruction manual…..READ THE INSTRUCTIONS MEN!!! Look at how God responded to His fallen creation. He did so graciously and sacrificed His only Son for us. Think about that hard for a moment? When you get the magnitude of that you will understand how we should be more loving, more giving, more selfless. As you look at God in the Bible you will see His patience, His wisdom, His goodness. You will discover the character traits and qualities that you would want to imitate in your own life.
Observe God carefully. Learn from His example. Grow in spiritual sensitivity. Be Like Christ! Be Like God.
