Our body is largely shaped by our eating, our activities, and our ancestors. Our mind is mainly molded by the things we allow through our eye gate and ear gate and how they react with our past perceptions and our present personality. But our soul should be developed by our desire to be molded like our master.
The goal for every Christian is not self-joy but to be like Christ:
Our desire to be conformed to the image of Christ means we cannot allow the world’s pressure or philosophy to mold us:
This devotion to be like Christ then molds our way of life into His way of life:
“As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:14-16)
You are what you are because something is molding you. What mold makes you??
