God’s ultimate goal for your life on earth is not comfort, but character development. He wants you to grow up spiritually and become like Christ. Becoming like Christ does not mean losing your personality or becoming a mindless clone. God created your uniqueness, so he certainly doesn’t want to destroy it. Christlikeness is all about transforming your character, not your personality.   The Purpose Driven Life


Take on an entirely new life—a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working itself out in your conduct as God accurately reproduces his character in you.     Eph. 4:22
