We all have a soul. Every person that breaths has a soul but we are not the same. Our souls are at different stages of being transformed and at different rates, but our souls are constantly being formed. This takes practice and opportunity.
God enters our lives and there is soul transformation. When the Spirit of God works and moves and sometimes we are in awe of the things we do. As God moves and works we are not the person we used to be.
But there is conscious work on our part for this to take place. We must be living a life followed by the example of Christ.
How did Jesus walk the earth? What were his characteristics? Are we displaying them in our “transforming lives”?
In becoming more Christlike can others say:
1). “I always feel loved when I’m around them”
2). “I never doubt they love me”.
Christ never changed towards people depending on his circumstances, whether they were good, bad or indifferent. His character stayed the same.
This made me think of my soul and what’s inside and am I treating others in general the same, with love. As Christians in order to be growing, changing, transforming in our souls, we need to be practicing spiritual development to be formed in Christ.
Question of the day:
What’s in your soul? What would a more loving you look like?
Our lives should reflect Christ in every area. Not only to family, friends, and loved ones but also to the homeless, the poor, the unruly neighbor, the ones that don’t look like us, the stranger at the store, the bothersome coworker and to all.
Christ didn’t specify or restrict His love, He died for all.
