1 John 2:6
Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
You can walk, live, serve, and love as Jesus did, but not through your own strength and effort. You can only move towards perfection in Jesus’ love through the power of the Holy Spirit in your life.
· What frustrations or obstacles are keeping you from growing in Christ-likeness?
· How do those obstacles reflect your own efforts instead of reliance on the power of the Holy Spirit?
