Looking like Jesus?

May 24th, 2017


Today’s Our Daily Bread was talking about lookalikes. It says that some people believe we all have someone who looks like us in the world. Then it poses a question to consider. Do we look like Jesus?

Here is a snippet that grabbed my attention…

Who do you look like? As you ponder that question, reflect on 2 Corinthians 3:18, where Paul tells us that we “are being transformed into [the Lord’s] image.” As we seek to honor Jesus with our lives, one of our goals is to take on His image. Of course, this doesn’t mean we have to grow a beard and wear sandals—it means that the Holy Spirit helps us demonstrate Christlike characteristics in how we live. For example, in attitude (humility), in character (loving), and in compassion (coming alongside the down and out), we are to look like Jesus and imitate Him.

My hope is that I will live more like Jesus as every year passes. If someone hasn’t seen me for a while and we catch up, I hope they see the change in my life.

How about you? In what ways are you becoming more like Jesus? What things can you noticed that has changed over the last years? I think that is worth reflecting on today.

God Bless,

Dave
