    What do your recent choices say about how much you want God to produce Christ-likeness in you?

    All depends on how we define "recent"  -- I've been doing pretty good the past few days!! In seriousness, I think my actions would show I'm a fallen sinner getting by on a lot of prayer and God's grace and mercy.

    Probably not much. I don't pray or read nearly enough, let alone try to be more Christ-like in my responses to people.

    If I walk in the spirit, I make good choices because I am not bound by the flesh. When I walk in the flesh I am in deep trouble--quick, fast, and in a hurry! In my own walk with Christ I have boiled it all down to one simple fact: This world has nothing for me and I cannot overcome my flesh without a constant meditation on walking in the spirit--a constant contact with God. Is this easy? No, and we will fail on many occasions; however, Paul reminds us that he too did those things he wished not to do. Thank God for his mercy and grace!

    It's a great question, I constantly shoot myself in the foot, I seem to do well for a while, see God using me massively. The major problem is a lack of self confidence. For us to be christlike we must first endure suffering, which in itself is a challenge given the fact I live in the Western World, I am however constantly being mocked by others, which is quite christ like. My conclusion is that without grace I would be screwed!

    Who is your King?  That will determine how you live out your Christianity.
    You know, its funny how much criticism these men later received (after years of service and hardships)... Criticism that was received from the sidelines... Derogatory remarks made sometimes by well intending Pastors and sometimes others that are ever sitting on the Game side Bench... Pastors who want to be the Big shots... Pastors who want to be the Coaches... and recieve all of the fame... Pastors who have never really p read more

    What an excellent and profound question!  One recent choice I have made is to follow a fitness program with a Christian coach and a focus upon good nutrtional choices (vs. just limiting calories) with a walking program.  I know that God loves me regardless, but I also know that my health and body image really affects how I am able to serve others.  If I eat like a glutton, give into temptation on a regular basis to all kinds of fatty, sugary foods, etc.,  I certainly don't look like I care about this temple (that belongs to God, my Christian belief).  Same if I neglect exercise in preference to an 18-hour day in front of the TV and/or computer screen.  So, doing this bootcamp is, I think, a good choice.  But more important, I sense, are the daily little decisions I make.  Do I snap at my spouse when a deep breath might produce a calmer, more loving response? Do I choose not to visit my sick neighbour, using the excuse that she isn't very sociable and maybe doesn't appreciate visitors when she is not feeling well?  Everyday I make little choices that probably create (or add to) poor impressions of Christ-followers in general.  It really helps me to make good choices if I pray and counsel with my closest Christian advocate (my husband).  I appreciate this question.

    I try to live my life as a testament to the love and faith I have in God.

    Everyday, and in every aspect of my life, as I grow in my relationship with Him, I'm challenged to become more Christ-like: from the patience I need to develop in realizing God's plan for my life, to the patience I need when dealing with other people, to the depth of my giving and service, all way down to the refining of my own attitude and character.

    But I want people to look at me, my life, and my experiences and say, "That's been ALL God!"
