I’ve said this a number of times, so….here we go…again. We are made in the Image of God…. so to some degree; we are God-like. Similar…that is. God… intended it that way. We humans are “gifted” the power of CHOICE.
We are unique in “that way”… because, when God made us…He felt… that we were so important, He knew exactly how many hairs we had on our head. He gave each of a number… He knows exactly who we are. So, we’re VIP’s, in the eyes of God.
Would it, then, not stand to reason that we have “value;” such that… others might want to emulate us. This is possible, not just, God is on our side; but also, because we have a choice to be “similar” to God. We choose God over satan… by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Anyway… when we accept God the Father, and Jesus Christ, His Son… as our Lord and Savior – then, we have in our procession… all the credentials that one would want… to emulate. The bigger question is this: Does anyone “see God” in us? Is that possible?
Be assured… I’m not just talking about spiritual issues here; as all parts of our life are important to God. He wants us to be happy; He wants to have a good family life, and a successful career. All of which….are attributes that others would want to emulate. With these “God-like” characteristics in our procession… then, others will see God in us. Please, REMEMBER this…when “other’s emulate us, they’re not just emulating our spiritual life… they are also looking at the way we conduct our “business life, our social life… and our family life.” They are looking at, and seeking to emulate… the “entire package” that God has given us.
We are told in… Matthew 28:19, which says… Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
This is the very verse that changed my life…when I recognized that people were looking at me; so therefore… I wanted them to see God’s work…in me. I don’t want to disappoint them, and mostly, I don’t want to disappoint God. I knew that He had my number.
