Disciple Maker – Everyone

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

Who do you look like? As you ponder that question, reflect on 2 Corinthians 3:18, where Paul tells us that we “are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 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.

As we “contemplate the Lord’s glory,” by fixing our eyes on Jesus, we can grow more and more like Him. What an amazing thing it would be if people could observe us and say, “I see Jesus in you”!

Lord, help us to gaze on You, to study You, to know You. Transform us into Your image by what we say, how we love others, and how we worship You. May others see Jesus in us. Amen.

Wow! When others see you do they see Jesus in you? Do you show Christlike characteristics or only when it’s convenient? We must strive every day to show love, humility and compassion. When I read this I couldn’t help but think, I may be the only bible some people read. Allow the Holy Spirit to help you demonstrate Christlike Characteristics!! Love is the family resemblance the world should see in followers of Christ.

Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
