Where Is Your “Christ like Attitude?”
Imagine the last time someone cut you off while driving? For some of us, we have what the many calls “road rage.” How did you react? Did you find yourself swearing and using obscene gestures? This message is not to call anyone out, but for everyone to examine himself and ask the question, “Am I showing my “Christ-like” attitude to everyone on a daily basis?”
Many might question if this kind of “attitude” is possible with sin always surrounding us. Beloved, there is one way to capture this attitude, and that is with the word of God.
I remember when I first started my walk in The Lord. I was being advised by a Pastor friend of mine. He mentioned to me that when a born again Christian starts out they want to capture everything that has to do with being “spiritual,” but eventually that buzz dies off. A comparison was given as to a sprinter running in a marathon. He starts with a great burst out of the gates, but he can’t sustain that speed because the journey is so long.
But the Christian that carries on and endures the race, keeping their eyes on the finish line and building themselves in the Word of God, is the one that creates the “Christ-like” attitude and impact the others around them to help finish the race together.
This journey is not meant to be a lonely one. Having a “Christ-like” attitude can help others, who aren’t so strong, finish the race and receive the reward we all inherit to receive through Jesus.
Let’s challenge ourselves going forward to take on a “Christ-like” attitude and help lead people to our Savior.
