Christ-like Character Counts

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
1 Peter 1:5-7, KJV


The root of every right decision is one’s character. Genuine words spoken stem from noble thoughts. Prayers are heartfelt and sincere. Christ-like character is forged on the anvil of honorable work. Polished by virtue and generosity. The basis of which is humility. Christ-like character is built over time through spiritual mindfulness and discipline.

It is a rare possession to have Christ-like character. It is quite difficult to build up. Yet, within moments – it is something that is easily torn asunder. As Christians, we seek to live each day with discipline, humility, honor, faith, and with genuineness. This is how we make a significant spiritual impact and influence. As we do, we build up a Godly integrity within our lives.

What weakens our character? When we are not willing to face up to our life’s challenges and problems with bold faith and courage.

Scriptures enlighten us to have courage, faith, and walk in humility


Heavenly Father, the scriptures instructs me to walk in righteousness and truth. I desire to be a worthy servant who walks with Christ-like purpose each day. Help me manage my thoughts, my speech, and my behavior in order for my actions help others draw close to you. In Jesus Name, Amen.
