If you’re much like me you’ve given a lot of thought to becoming more like Jesus. To emulate (copy) another person’s characteristics is the greatest compliment you can give them. One of the ways to do that is to know His attributes. Now to do them all would take an entire library so I’ve selected just a few to consider.
LOVE Doing what is best for others without expecting anything in return. 1 Corinthians 13:4:7-8
JOY Real happiness in every part of God’s creation. Nehemiah 8:10
PEACE A sense of tranquility which is a result of resting in His Spirit. John 14:7
PATIENCE Accepting all situations, even the really difficult ones, as part of God’s plan. Ephesians 4:2
KINDNESS A loving attitude toward all. Ephesians 4:32
CONTENTMENT Accepting God’s provision in whatever measure He gives. 2 Timothy 6:6-7
HOLINESS Set apart to join Him in His activities. 2 Corinthians 7:3
SENSITIVITY Opening our hearts and minds to compassion for those around us. Romans 12:5
JUST Doing what is right. Romans 2:11
SUBMISSION Yielding to God’s authority in all things. Ephesians 5:21
GRACE God’s free and undeserved favor. 2 Corinthians 12:9
There are so many more than these. It’s interesting that each of us, through the Holy Spirit, has them all. It really is our choice whether or not we let them shine through and out.
Blessings to you and yours!
