Lesson 10 Pursue Christlike Virtues

May 5, 2019


Christians are called to become like Christ. 


The Lesson Overview


Today’s lesson focuses on Christlikeness. What does it mean to be Christlike? In what sense does a Christian appear Christlike, both inside and outside of church? How does the Christian become Christlike? 

Paul addressed such questions in his Epistles to the Romans and the Galatians. Included are both the principles of Christlikeness and their practical application. The believer is not called to live like Christ through personal effort, for that would be impossible. By yielding to the Holy Spirit, the Christian discovers that Christlikeness comes from God. He justifies and sanctifies us, and empowers us through the Holy Spirit. The end goal is that the believer will begin to think and act more like Jesus.
