you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,
Colossians 3:9-10

"Look to Abraham your father, And to Sarah who bore you; For I called him alone, And blessed him and increased him."
Isaiah 51:2

I am a new man in Christ
I am a son of the Patriarch Abraham

God is Making Me More


A spirit of solidarity with others who are created in the Image of God which enables me to understand their true feelings and needs.

Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
Romans 12:15

God has equipped me with many senses, so that I can perceive the true spirit and emotions of those around me. By exercising my sense I am able to fulfill the Law of Christ.

In a secular age which says man is an animal, and employs human beings in impersonal and mechanistic ways, I seize every opportunity to affirm the humanness of others. I actively seek to discern the heart, soul, and spirit of others, so that I may help them give glory to God.

Because I study the Law of God, I know the difference between true emotions and false ones. I can distinguish legitimate feelings from rebellious passions, and Godly longings from self-centered urges.

I have developed a heightened sensitivity to ungodly dispositions in others, so that I can be used by God to help "bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:5).

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
