“Christianity and its goal, Christlikeness, have a person in mind: Christ!

What sets Christian spiritual activity apart from all other religions is that they have knowledge of Christ as their goal; not moral perfection (although you will become more moral), not tranquility (although your life will become remarkably more peaceful). And because of the grace you have in Christ, the disciplines will do nothing to make you more accepted by the Father. You cannot be more accepted than you already are in Christ, since He has already done it all for you!
So why exercise spiritual disciplines?
To know Jesus Christ.”

So, You Want To Be Like Christ
Charles Swindoll

I wish I’d known this my first 10 years as a Christian. I’d have made more progress if I’d understood the REAL goal, if I’d had a clear perception of the WHO. My focus became the WHAT (to do) and that eclipsed the WHO.

I have been reading in Mark’s gospel seeking to focus on Jesus and a few days ago I visited the Virtue website and found this in their Bible Study archives.

I love it when God repeats the message He’s giving me 😀

  1. The power of the Lord is delivered in simple messages! This is pure and easy to understand, yet is hits home very well, Kelly. We will never do enough to become more “acceptable” to God. If we could reach perfection, there would have been no need to have Jesus intercede for us on the cross…

    We work to do the best we can in Him, keep a “short account” of our sins, and try to center our minds on the prize…heaven!

    Good post!!
