“May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ —for this will bring much glory and praise to God.” Philippians 1:11 NLT
Character is defined as the moral qualities that make up an individual, personality, nature, temperament, disposition...the way someone thinks, feels and behaves.
Paul expresses the desire that believers always be filled with the fruit of their salvation. In other words, that which is produced in one's life as a result of salvation. Paul describes it as the righteous character produced in you by Jesus…Jesus is in you producing the moral qualities and personality that reflect the very nature of Christ himself.
We are to be like Jesus and look like Jesus by reflecting His character through the way we live our lives.
The challenge before each of us is to live like Jesus, love like Jesus, and lead others to do the same.
Let others see Jesus in you today.
