Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6

What Mold Makes You

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:

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29).

Our desire to be conformed to the image of Christ means we cannot allow the world’s pressure or philosophy to mold us:

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2)

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??
