Who are you becoming?

For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
Romans 8:29 (NLT)

We were out for brunch on Sunday and asked our server about the eggs. After telling us our options someone in our party mentioned how knowledgeable he was about eggs. He stood with pride and said, “I learned that from Arnold!” He was pretty excited to let us know he was following in the former Mr. Universe’s egg expertise.

We try to emulate a lot of people in life, don’t we? If we want to be better at business we look for the best businessperson we can find and try to do what they do. We do the same thing with our sports, finances, parenting… you name it! We are natural-born followers.

Here’s the truth, God didn’t create you to be like people, because people fail. God created you to become like Jesus. Romans 8:29 says, “God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son (Jesus).” (NLT)

Here’s the truth, God didn’t create you to be like people, because people fail. God created you to become like Jesus. Romans 8:29 says, “God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son (Jesus).” (NLT)

If you want to become the best you can be then you need to become like the best person to ever walk the planet.

No one has ever loved more, accomplished more or sacrificed more than Jesus did and no one ever will. He is the perfect example for every area in your life.

You can begin to become more like Jesus by letting God guide your life instead of others. Galatians 5:16 says, “Let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.”

When you follow God’s lead He leads you to Jesus. He knows what’s best for you. He created you to be the best, to be like Jesus.

So make the choice today that will move you in the direction of true success. Choose to become like Jesus. You will never be disappointed.

Live on purpose,
