Strive towards Christ
Once I had set my mind to this focus of Christ, it seemed like opportunities to put it to the test kept arising. These opportunities were not always ones looked forward to. Christ is Christ because He loves perfectly. No matter what the situation maybe or how unfair the circumstance He still loved perfectly. My opportunities came from loving in tough situations. We all come across a lot of people in our lives, some are not the easiest to love.
How does Christ do it?? How can He keep His cool, and not get frustrated?? How does He only show this perfect type of love, and not even complain or expect praise back??
I don't think I will ever fully know how He does it in this life. But I am sure grateful that He does. I am grateful that He has mastered the art of Love, giving us all an example to follow. I have realized in my focus on Christ, as I come closer to Him it seems like I see more and more areas I can personally improve on. How awesome is that, as we strive to come closer to Christ, Heavenly Father shows us our imperfections and gives us the chance to work on them.
I invite all of you in joining with me in attempts to become more like Christ. He is the light and life of the world. He is perfect. He is the Lamb of God. He is our older brother we can all look up to and diligently strive to become like!!
