What kind of virtues do you pursue? What kind of person do you want to be? What are the character qualities you desire?
In this message we are exhorted to live out our faith in practical actions that give evidence of various virtues: goodness, self-control, love, brotherly affection, etc. However if we are only practicing these virtues because of duty, our faith and wonder in God will not increase. Effort must be supported and driven by grace. When we fully recognizing that Jesus Christ has made us truly his own, can we pursue his virtues freely and with a motivation of love.
