Be Who Jesus Wants You To Be
From Colossians: A 28-Day Devotional
Have you ever asked for a second chance? It’s safe to say we all have! What’s great is God has enabled second, third and fourth chances by sending Jesus to die for our sins. His sacrifice allows us to be who we are meant to be in Christ. “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).
The way we become who God wants us to be is by setting our hearts and minds on things above (Colossians 3:1-2). There are many ways we can do this, but the best way to start is by reading our Bible daily to see how Jesus set His heart and mind on the things above while He was on earth.
The Bible shows us that Jesus spent intentional time with God (Mark 1:35). God’s heart for the world is shown through Jesus’s willingness to serve others (Mark 10:45). One of the last things Jesus called us to do was to go tell the world the “good news” (Mark 16:15). When we spend time with God, serve others and tell the world the good news about Jesus, our hearts and minds will be set on what He wants. When we center our lives around these things, we will be living out who God called us to be.

- What is one step you can take to serve those around you?
- What is one way you are seeking opportunities to tell or display the “good news” in your daily life?
