Created to Become Like Christ
If someone were to ask you, “What is the biggest hindrance to spiritual growth in your life?”, what would your answer be? Would it be that you don’t read your bible enough? You may think that you don’t know enough. It could be your doubt or lack of faith that is holding you back. Of course, there is some truth in all of those statements. But one of the biggest reasons we don’t grow as Christians is because we are too good at lying to ourselves. When God whispers in our ear about something in our life that needs to change, we tend to resist his voice and assume that we are ok. That’s exactly what Peter did on the night Jesus was betrayed. When we don’t listen to his voice, life has a way of showing us the truth by putting us under pressure. But, we still have a choice as to how we will respond. Will we dig our heels in and stubbornly refuse to accept the truth? Will we let failure disqualify us? Or will we let Jesus restore us and make us into the disciples he wants us to be?
