Put On Christ

Here's an awesome quote from Elisabeth Elliot's Daily Devotional that I had to share:

"Put on Christ. The act of honest obedience--the fruit of love for Christ--is your part. Making you Christlike through and through is his part."

It's like a light bulb went off in my head: It's His job to make me Christlike! It's not up to me!

That's my problem a lot of times anyway ... thinking that it's all up to me .... am I the only one that gets caught up in that kind of thinking?

I had to smile when I read the verse you used because it had the word "obedience" in it. I just finished a LONG post about just that!! It's about teaching children to obey the FIRST time you tell them something and why it is so important.
