Becoming Christ-like in Character

Pastor John Wagner has ministered around the world for more than 100 congregations in the United States, the Caribbean, South Africa, Italy, and Germany. He has been a pastor for over 25 years.

What was Christ like when he was alive on the earth? What does it mean to have a Christ-like character? The Bible tells the story that after Jesus died and returned to appear to his disciples, he asked Peter if he loved him. Peter answered yes, and Jesus replied, “Feed my lambs.” If we are to have a character like Jesus Christ’s, one expression will be to intentionally nourish God’s children in various ways.

We will also shed our own self-importance to develop a godly perspective. The Apostle Paul said to think on and seek after whatever is honest, just, pure, lovely, virtuous, and worthy of praise. His words are a guide for developing Christ-like characteristics.
