Becoming Like Christ

You were made to become like Christ. That is God’s goal for your life: to be conformed to Jesus.  Jesus is the reason why we exist. Through him we have been created. This is stated in the opening of John’s gospel (chapter one, verses 1-5). This means our life finds purpose and meaning in relating rightly to Jesus as our leader. In so doing, we are to become conformed to him. What does this mean? It means (1) to let go of things, people, places, desires that hinder you from becoming like Him. (2). To learn and take on the character of Jesus with new behavior and attitudes (3). To produce fruit of the Spirit, the character of Jesus –see Galatians 5:23- that is a godly life.
 
All this is possible because of the Holy Spirit that lives in you whose power has been given to change us!
