“…because AS HE IS so also are we in this world, “ 1 John 4:17.
Our journey begins in spiritual birth as babes in Christ.
God’s process continues to unfold in raising us as His children, teaching us obedience in the things we have to suffer and release, so we may grow to gain the ultimate prize of becoming mature as sons.
The way He saw, envisioned us from the beginning, and the only mould we were designed to fit.
Sons brought into perfection. Sons in Union. Sons who perfectly mirror and reflect the Character, Nature and Personality of our Father.
Sons who do not TRY TO LIVE UP TO BE LIKE HIM in their strength – but who have learned to yield themselves to be changed, so their flaws may be worked out, as Christ is worked in, so they may live to be AS HE IS in this world, because of HIM WHO LIVES IN THEM.
Who also perfected Himself in them, to be REFLECTED THROUGH THEM!
Just yield and allow Him to lead you, and to complete His work in you!
YOU were destined for glory!
