from Jonathan Edwards:
Do I have/do I want/Am I:
A deepening sense of God’s gracious initiative with me?
A deepening attraction to God and His ways for their (His ways) own sake?
A deepening aesthetic appreciation for the beauty of holiness?
Increasing knowledge and spiritual understanding?
A deepening conviction of the truth of the Gospel and the reality of God?
Changes in my nature – both temperament and personality?
The development of a more gentle Christ-like spirit within you?
Increasing tenderness of heart and holy fear of the Lord?
More and more balance and symmetry in your life?
Deepening hunger for God – hungering and thirsting for righteousness?
Living a more practical, surrendered, and perseverant life?
From Doug Pollock:
Do I look at people the way Jesus does?
Pray: Lord, as I interact with people, may I do so as you would.
More to come.
