God Controls How we Become Like Him

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

As a child of God, the purpose of your life is to become more like Christ. The end goal of your life is to be in union with Christ.  God is in control of your life’s purpose to become  a new creature in Christ.  God is also in control of how you become new.  He is in control of the process and the purpose!  It is not for you to understand how God takes all of your challenges, sufferings, victories, emotions, and experiences and causes you to become more like Christ. Believe He is transforming you to become more like His Son even when you do not understand.  It is the work of God’s Spirit to grow you in Christ; enjoy the process of becoming a new creature in Christ!

  1. This is such a beautiful encouragement; especially for the service people entitled GI “Government Issue.” They are valuable people who love as Jesus as loved; may our government of, by, and for the people get right and learn Truth. Peace and blessings…
