Those of us who have been made alive together with Christ Jesus, those of us who have been made the sons/daughters of the King, those of us who are being conformed to the image of Jesus…
Our behavior flows from our identity, not from our feelings.
How we live is determined by who we are.
What we do/how we behave is always going to flow out of who we are.
If you live for yourself, it’s going to reveal itself in your behavior.
If you live for the glory of other people (which is another way of living for yourself), it’s going to be revealed in your behavior.
If you live for the glory of your Creator and Savior, it’s going to reveal itself in your behavior.
