Becoming like Jesus


Deuteronomy 4:1-49
Luke 6:39-7:10
Psalm 68:1-18
Proverbs 11:28


Luke 6:40 “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.”


So, when we repent of our sins and self-rule and trust in Jesus to save us, what is our goal? Simply put, to become more like Jesus.

That’s where the verse for today comes in. Our desire should be to be “fully trained” so that we can “be like (our) teacher.”

How can we become like Him? We’ve got to spend time in the Bible – plenty of time. We’ve got to not only read it but study it. We’ve got to ask God’s Holy Spirit to enlighten our minds so that we can see the truths He wants to reveal to us. And then, we must have an ongoing commitment to make whatever adjustment to conform our thinking and behavior to Scripture.

If we are truly saved and are following Him, this isn’t an option. It is what we were called to do.

Are you spending daily time in God’s Word?
Are you studying it and depending upon God’s Holy Spirit?
Are you making the adjustments to your thinking and behavior?
