You Were Created to Become Like Christ
Romans 8:28 (NIV)
Synopsis: I had people tell me, “You look just like your dad.” Personally, I think I look like my dad’s son, but I understand the resemblance. I don’t work at it. It’s just naturally a part of who I am. Good or bad it is who I am.
When we are born into the family of God we take on the image of the Father. The most perfect example of the Father in human form was seen in the Son, Jesus of Nazareth. Believers have that image to look to in order to determine whose we are.
Believers are human beings born again by the poser of the Father. That second birth starts a war within us. Victory is won every time our lives reflect the presence of Christ within us.
Scripture Text (NLT): John 10:22-38; Romans 8:28 (NIV), Acts 9:1-9, 7:57-60; 1 Peter 4:13; Ephesians 4:11-16
Memory Verse: Romans 8:28 (NIV)
In all things God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose.
