Growing into Christlikeness

John Paul Westin continues our series teaching from Colossians 3:1-17.  To be a disciple of Christ is to put on the nature of Christ and become like him. When we observe the character of Jesus in the Gospels we see that central to his work was an understanding of the value of people. We must learn to look at others through Jesus’ eyes and to pray that the divine passion for people will be formed in our hearts. Concrete, Spirit-empowered actions embody this passion for those around us.
