Jesus Is Our Pattern
ROMANS 8:29 NLT 29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn, with many brothers and sisters.
Jesus is not only our Saviour, but also the model of what we are to become.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:49 NKJ 49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.
1 JOHN 3:2 NKJ 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
God's whole program with mankind is to eventually make us all like Jesus Christ.
COLOSSIANS 3:10 NLT 10 Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.
Jesus is our pattern, our example. He is the one we are to follow, to imitate.
1 CORINTHIANS 11:1 NKJ 1 Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.
JOHN 14:12 NKJ 12 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
We can't make ourselves like Jesus. Otherwise we would not even need a savior. But God can, and is.
SAY THIS: God is working to make me like Jesus.
