To really be what God wants you to be you have to need God, so much. So much that you realize if He ever walked away from you, you would die.

Just reading your bible isn't enough. God wants someone to love him without end. To talk to him and have a relationship with him. To fall in love with him. As long as you abide in God and he in you, and you put forth an effort to praise and worship God. You do this today, you'll be a better christian tommorrow.

I always like to just talk to God. Even if I don't feel like I hear back, I always feel like he hears me.

Reading the Bible is not enough. You must develop a trusting relationship with God. How do you do that? How do you form a close, trusting relationship with a long-time friend? You get to know that person. Every day you are with that person you grow. Knowing God is the same way. He reveals himself in the Bible. There will be a time where you don't entirely need the Bible to trust God just as the Apostles. Trust isn't a book, it's the relationship.

Contemplating, memorising and living the Word. Praying continually and building a relationship with Jesus Christ. Go to church that uses the Bible. Take courses at church. Alpha course? Become involved, offer your services at church. Read other Christian literature. Watching God-TV, Hope -tv, etc. Partake with Christian community.

Reading and understanding the word of God is not enough to be Christ like person.You have to personally accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. In 2Cor.5:17 Therefore if any man...You are now starting to live and obey according to His will and glory so it could mean walking to Christ likeness.

That is a good question. It takes time my friend. You need to study, don't just read the word of God. Wait and wait somemore on God. He has chosen and saved you, He will also, make you.

A pray many times each day that God and Jesus will give me deeper meaning from reading the Bible and ask for His will (not mine) to become evident in my life.

It seems like progress is slow sometimes, but other times, it happens very quick!

Remember to say thanks (praise) to Him for allowing us to understand each new insight.

for me, you just have to take the first step... in offering or lifting up that desire first to Jesus Christ to guide you on what you wanted to be... Remember if your tempted, u have the chance to grow more, to overcome it, means u have grew spiritually.... then, follow Christ whatever He wants u to do... Never hesitate... Good Luck and I was blessed...

mark it was the apostles faith and total devotion to that faith in jesus,who he was why he came that empowered them and will empower you to overcome the in my opinion you should substitute the word flesh for the word world.only by taking up your cross daily as jesus said to do and crucify your flesh can you overcome the world.
---tom2 on 2/25/07

mark.heres the bottom line to your question.submit to God through jesus and live your life day to day ,hour to hour, minute to minute,second to second deciding to become more like jesus.THATS IT IN A NUTSHELL BROTHER.
---tom2 on 2/24/07

part2, mark, even if they were to do something or say something that hurt you,forgive them.malice towards no one,with only love in your heart for your fellow man,no matter what they have done. why? because God will forgive anything and so should we.

---tom2 on 2/22/07

mark, develop a relationship with Jesus by talking to Him, telling him How you feel about Him, how much you Love Him and want to be more Christ like. Then find out who you are in Christ Jesus. "I am the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus." Go through the New Testament and find all of the scriptures that tell you who you are in Christ Jesus. Keep the dialog open every day between you and God. Let Him lead you and guide you in the way in which you should go.

mark, do a study on the Holy Spirit starting with the Gospel of John, Chapter 14. Write down all of the things Jesus said about the Holy Spirit and what His purpose is in your life. Get the Baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:38. Read the Epistles of Paul that tell you how the Holy Spirit works and has worked in His life and can and will work in your life. You do need the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to understand the things of the Spirit of God.

mark, the more word you put inside of you, the more you become like Jesus. Why? Because Jesus said, "My words are Spirit and Life." You are putting Jesus inside of you when you put the word inside of you, "and the word became flesh and dwelt amoung us."
---donna6598 on 2/22/07

The answer is prayer. Cleanse yourself before the Lord-1st John 1:9"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Then having cleanse yourself ask God for a closer relationship. Ask God to let you rub up against Him. Your prayer and cry will be hear and answered.
---Mima on 2/22/07

Get the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and you will begin to understand everything in the word of God. Find an anointed man of God to lay hands on you and Baptize you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and you SHALL receive the GIFT of the Holy Spirit (which is the Holy Spirit Himself). The 3rd person of the Trinity.

Oh my. Without sounding like I am bragging. It takes time, my friend. Some of us a lot longer than others. You can start by not caring what people think about you. Lose your reputation among men. Please learn, how to be yourself. [Not easy.]

Reading the bible is good, but is not enough. Jesus desires a personal relationhip with you, and prayer is essential to that. Prayer can involve praise and worship, making requests, just talking with God as you would a friend. Listening, waiting on the Holy Spirit is key also. Be still and KNOW that He is God.
