Romans 8 vs
29》》”For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be CONFORMED to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”~》》NKJV》
Peaceful greetings to you, Cherished one. Mostly, mankind admire to be like those who have made great success in certain areas of life. Many Christians desire to emulate the life of the good people in the Bible. But God’s ultimate plan and heartbeat is for all to learn from His only begotten Son, Jesus, the Christ. Our focal text unveils that you are predestined to be conformed or molded to the image of God’s Son. All that we need for living a victorious Christian life is found in Him.
The word “conformed” used above comes from the Greek word “summorphos”. It means “having the same form as another” or being fashioned like someone . Jesus is the only “form” God predestined us to become or fashioned unto. Yes, God’s standard for His children is to attain to the “measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13). Every believer is destined to be conformed to Christ in words, thoughts and deeds (Matt 11:29,30). He is the Perfect Example for living a fulfilling life on earth.
The Apostles, Peter, Paul and John had Jesus as their major focus (1 Cor 11:1; Ephesians 5:1). They emulated Him in words, deeds, thoughts to the extent that the Jews and the high priests noticed “they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13). You must consciously desire and persistently walk and grow in the likeness of His wisdom, knowledge, word, deeds and thought patterns in order to represent Him well on earth. Beloved, let all your desires and pursuit be in conformity to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. His Spirit is here to help you no matter how challenging it may seem. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Dear Lord Jesus, I love You so much for You first loved me. As You are so I am in this world. My life is predestined to be conformed and molded to Yours. I partake and live the divine nature. I am living to show forth Your praises in word, thoughts and deeds by the power of Your Spirit in me. Hallelujah !
◇ Enjoy A Beautiful Sunday ◇
Pray that you are being helped by God’s Spirit to daily conform to the image of Jesus Christ.
