Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/20/14

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

Jesus Christ risen“[We] are being transformed into his image…”   (2 Cor. 3:18)

If we belong to Jesus Christ, if He is our Lord and Savior, we are being made new in Christ, a new creation in Christ. We are to become more and more like Him and less and less as we were when we were unredeemed and lost in sin. Our transition to being a child of God is instantaneous, but this transformation into His image is an ongoing process.

Each day we are to die a bit more to ourselves and become a bit more like Him. The closer we stay to Him the better, for it can be difficult to go through this refining process, everyday to die to self and to live for Christ, but it is His Spirit that leads us, and He is full of grace and mercy. Give yourself into His hands, and be transformed. Let Him make you to be like Christ.

May the blessings of Christ abide with you each day as you give yourself to Him.
