Shaped by Jesus

What does it profit, my brothers, though a man says he has faith, and have not works? can faith save him?  – James 2:14

It can be really easy to say you are a Christian.

However, the challenge is this; that living a life as an on-fire-for-God, sold-out follower of Jesus, is much more than just putting ‘Christian’ on your Facebook or twitter page.

It means, day-by-day walking with the Lord. It means doing the right things, having the right conversations, attitudes, disciplines and habits in your life that will fuel a passion for Jesus.

Today’s verse challenges us with this, it says; what does it profit, my brothers, though a man says he has faith, and have not works? In other words, how does it help you, if you save you have faith in Jesus, and yet don’t live a lifestyle based on Jesus and the word of God.

The truth is, every Christian is on a different journey, at different levels and God accepts you as you are, however, if we claim to be following Jesus, we must allow God the shape our lives to be like Jesus, in how we behave in our daily lives.

Cube Challenge: Ask God today to shape your life to look more like Jesus.  Pray, read the Bible daily and you will be amazed at the transformation.
