Remembering Christ, will transform us into His likeness. Our thoughts are the builders, which rear the temple of our character. If we think of unclean things–our lives will become unclean. If we think of earthly things–we will grow earthly. If we think of Christ, if thoughts of Him are in our mind and heart continually, we will be changed, moment by moment, into His beauty!
J. R. Miller, “The life of Jesus”
This is a constant challenge, and one which I would do well to remember. It is surely when we are beset by evil thoughts and desires of sin, that we are most able to grow in Christ by fixing our eyes on Him and trusting Him to carry us through!
