HAVING godly character
Let’s face it, we are all human, we are all flesh and with that being said we all have and will make mistakes in our life. Even the Bible clearly says that we are not perfect. “For we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory” . With that being said that doesn’t give us a license to sin. My point today is how to achieve and maintain Godly character, the person who we really are even behind closed doors when no one is looking. Are we fake, or genuine?
Meanings of Character

1. The way someone thinks, feels and behaves. 

2. One of the attributes or features that make up and distinguish an individual. 

3. A set of qualities that make a place or thing different from other places or things.

The moment we said yes to Jesus, all of our past was erased, washed away by His blood! We are saved, sanctified, redeemed in the blood of Jesus! We are set apart from this World, Don’t act like it live it!

1. Achieving Godly Character

Character cannot be bought, produced by man or having good moral qualities. It is fabricated from the heart of God.

“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.” – Charles Spurgeon

Are you best known by being a Godly person who shows the compassion and love of Christ no matter what circumstance you’re in? Or is it just on Sunday’s? Charles says it best when he puts ” A good character is the best tombstone.” Meaning that Godly character is solid, it’s a foundation in which a person builds on. “Carve your name on hearts…” I believe as Christians as we continue our walk with God, Godly character will be worked into our personality, and before you know it, you will do something that shows the love of God without even knowing it, without wanting your own praise or acknowledgment!

2. Maintaining Godly Character

 Our actions do speak louder than words. And that’s why it is important to maintain Godly character, but how?

As I ask my junior high-class, who is your focus, who are you pursuing? The same question I ask to you.

Ephesians 2:10 ” For we are his workmanship, created in Jesus Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

If we have our focus on Jesus, and to do His will we can and will maintain Godly character.

1 Kings 9:4 God instructs Solomon to walk with “integrity of heart and uprightness” as his father did. David says in 1 Chronicles 29:17, “I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity.”

 

Is God pleased with your character?
