Peter Journal #5
My next question from my Peter study asked, ” How can I pay attention to developing inner character?”
That is an extremely good question that I think gets widely ignored. The churches assume that once you come to Christ that you will seek all this on your own or that God will fix it all without any other help. What is not taught to any of the believers is that you need to be intentional with developing inner character.
How do I develop patience, peace, self-control, kindness, goodness? I want to be but how do I? That gets so neglected.
I’ve discovered in my personal life that my study through Proverbs is a great starting point and is doing great. I’m still growing but I’m seeing a little progress.
You need to be in the Word, prayer, and fellowship with others. You cannot neglect these.
