“…Don’t get the IDEA that being ‘God-like’… is just for Sunday’s.  Or, certain spiritual-type occasions.  Or… for the ‘other guy.’  Certainly it is that… but more certain… being God-like…takes in ALL occasions…” 

WE’RE UNIQUELY SPECIAL…We are one of a kind.  While each of us are different, we are, in general… very similar.   All too often we think that we must be like this particular Leader, or that one… maybe a sports celebrity, or worse… a hollywood  celebrity.  All BULL!

Better to be yourself.  Trying to be like someone else…will never work.  In the process of wanting to be like someone else… we sometimes lose our bearing… and take ‘their bad stuff,’ along with their good stuff.  Therein… comes the rub.  Therein… we are getting in bed with satan.

Be like God intended for you to be…. Uniquely SPECIAL.  For…everything that we do… that is for the Love of God, and man-kind… is another STEP CLOSER… to being more ‘God-Like.’

If copying someone is so important… then, why not… Emulate God.   Since He made us in his own image and likeness… surely; I mean SURELY… we can’t go wrong… wanting to be more God-like.  Think of the alternative.

When God made us… He gave us all the ingredients to success, happiness, joy, and GRACE.  All of the pieces of the puzzle (our life) are there when we were born.  We can ACCEPT, or we can REJECT.  We can be God-like…or just like satan.  The CHOICE is ours to make.

Now remember… don’t get the IDEA that being ‘God-like’… is just for Sunday’s.  Or, certain spiritual-type occasions.  Or… for the ‘other guy.’  Certainly it is that… but more certain… being God-like…takes in ALL occasions.  It takes in ‘every single EVENT in your life… social, career, family… and yes, Spiritual.  The ‘only time’ that God is missing from the formula… is when we REJECT Him.  God doesn’t take too kind to rejection.

God also created a certain place… made especially for satan, and his followers.  Those who REJECT… Our Lord, Jesus Christ… are condemned to hell… for eternity.  They are sentenced to hell… to permanently, forever, for eternity… to NEVER see God again.  Your new best friend, and all of his associates…who professed to care for you… will HATE you.  Because satan hates God… he hates everything, and everybody.  And, all of that HATE… is collected, and assembled… in one place, the same place… the fiery pits of hell.

We get plenty of warning in …ROMANS 12:2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  And, again in …ROMANS 12:6Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith.  And finally, in….MATTHEW… 7:13Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.

…Blessings… to ALL… as we seek to be more like… Our Creator. …cjlb…10/15/2017
