    out of the book Purpose driven life.


    Remember that youre character is the sum total of youre habits.You cant claim to be kind unless you are habitualy kind_ you showkindness without even thinking about it.You cant claim to have integrity unless it is youre habit to always be honest. A husband who is faithfull to hiss wife most of the time is not faithfull at all (auroraflowers frowns and mmms ,dont gave a husband but still ya know..)
    Youre habits define youre character.
    There is only one way to develop the habits of a christlike character.
    You must practise them_and that takes time! there are no instant habits.
    paul urged timothy "practice these things.devote youre life to them so that everyone can see youre progress"':bowl:
    if you practise somthing over time ,you get good at it.
    Repetition is the mother of character and skill.These character building habits are often called "'spirritual disciplines"' and there are dozens of great books that can teach you how to do these.See appendix 2 for recommended reading list of books for spirritual growth...

    and auroraflower adds
    and the best one i believe is the bibel the word of god itself...for spirritual growth..
    but god speaks trough people "'the holy ghost" still and inspires people to write to encouriage..
    "'seek trough and behold the good...."
    but always remind that these writters are not perfect..
    they can make mistakes to...
    just jump over the errors...

    Yes, it does take time and great effort to live as one Anointed to the Father, just as the Son has taught us. It is all well worth it, in the end, because we become as our Teacher and are called faithful to the King in more than just what we speak. :)

    To be a believer in the works of the Faithful Son, in His resurrection is not something just anyone can do, but only those who are willing to devote their life to our Savior, for much is expected from the believer so that it may be shown, your belief extends beyond your own words.

    To be faithful unto the KING our Father and His Son, one must believe and accept His sacrifice in the Body for our iniquities that we'd be salvaged, and recognize what sacrifices of themselves have to be made, that though can never match what He has done, is still necessary to show a true love and trust for our KING and His Son.

    These sacrifices become habitual and become the Holy Works that follow behind the faithful in their beliefs of the King. :10300: And in these are we justified before our Father.
