### 6.1 Discussion: Devotional Reflection-A More Christ Like Life ###

 

Getting Started

We have examined throughout this course the characteristics of a good effective leader and the traits of a Christian.

Traits like honesty, integrity, and transparency are elements to exhibit in the workplace and our personal life. As a Christian begins their walk with Christ, these traits develop over time. A Christian has to put off their old self and live in the new life that they are with Christ.

Upon successful completion of this discussion, you will be able to:

  • Examining how character traits begin to shape our life.

Resources

  • Bible (New International Version)

Background Information

As believers in Christ, we are called to live a life that is distinctly different from the world around us. In Colossians 3:2, Paul instructs us to set our hearts and minds on things above, not the things of this world. To focus on the things above, there are things of this world, some habits, attitudes, practices, and sins that need to go. We have to begin to remove and separate ourselves from any destructive behavior or attitudes. Remember back to Workshop Two, we move from the darkness into the light, because we are children of light. In Colossians 3, the list of things we need to remove from our life is fairly inclusive: evil attitudes, evil speech, deception, and several types of impurity. The list of things we should strive towards is similar to many of the traits and virtues we discussed in this course. Some of the characteristics include compassion, kindness, humility, and honesty. The love of Christ is what ties these virtues together. As believers in Christ, these virtues should shine from our lives. 

Colossians 3:2-10 (NIV):

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

Colossians 3:12-14(NIV):

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
