LIKENESS OF CHRIST



God's plan from the beginning was to have a group of people who, together, would be called His Church. He designed His plan so that these people (His Church) would become more and more like Christ, His firstborn. The people of His church are brothers and sisters of Christ. Someday, soon, His Church
will be the Bride of Christ. What a comfort this is!

Heavenly Father, we thank you that you designed a plan that results in our being like Christ and being with you forever. In Jesus' name.

Read Romans 8:29

"For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers." (NIV)

"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren." (KJV)

Yes very comforting. Great post... thanks. I tried to leave a comment at your other blog, but it wouldn't let me. I love that 90/10 principle. That scenario was perfect. Sometimes I'm having a bad day and I stop for a moment and choose to adjust my thinking and actions for the rest of the day. Half a good day is still better than a total wash-out. :o)
