Things the Lord gives me, and then I write them.

Have you seen Christ today?

Thinking about Christ-likeness today: What is that? What does it look like? How do we obtain it? Has anyone actually seen an example of it in action today?
My thoughts: Whenever we have defenses built up, (and we all do) these keep His Spirit from flowing through us. (and it stops His likeness or character from coming out of us) So, the baptism of fire, or letting ourselves die daily, is paramount in bringing down those strongholds which have been built in us. Only then, as we submit to this process, can His Spirit have it's way in and through us, and others can be touched by Him. But most of us, operate from our fleshly nature of defense and self-protection, not even knowing that it is impeding this flow, because we have either justified or rationalized it with our carnal mind and thinking.
Cheryl Flook's comment on the last blog uses words to describe what it might look like it we actually did "lay our lives down for one another." I know I fail daily in this, but am staying in the fire of God as there is no other way to get rid of these dams which block the flow.

    the attainment of christ, in us, the aroma of God, has to do with being connected with the one who knows us and made us in His likeness, to be loved and then love. Yes many of us have not had very good examples of this great love because of the lack of spending quality time with the Only One can fill and change and heal all the brokeness, all the sexual immorality...we are beings of pain and brokeness which produces a vicious cycle, until we, Gods creation, come into Him, under Him and He fills us with the Love that will release us to love a broken and pain carrying generation.
    So we spend time with are maker, allowing Him to speak and heal and deliver and fill us with His love first, then release this love to ones around us, our family, friends, enemies, the lost and dying!

    You worded that beautifully, with profound understanding.
