Who’s Your Daddy
“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.” (1 John 3:10)
Today’s Morsel: This year, here at our church, God has me focusing a lot on Christian character. Character is defined as the strength of moral fiber. A.W. Tozer described character as “the excellence of moral beings.” He also states, “As the excellence of gold is its purity and the excellence of art is its beauty, so the excellence of man is his character.” Persons of character are noted for their honesty, ethics, and charity. Descriptions such as “man of principle” and “woman of integrity” are assertions of character. A lack of character is moral deficiency, and those who lack it tend to behave dishonestly, unethically, and uncharitably. Building character demands honesty within yourself to determine your own character weaknesses. Either Jesus is our Father, or He isn’t. There is no in between. And when He is, we will take on His character and become Christ-like.
Sing: Well, I’ve been changed, I am newborn now, all my life has been rearranged. What a difference it made when the Lord came to stay in my heart, oh yes, I’ve been changed.
