Becoming more and more like Jesus is a spiritual journey, and as such, it requires supernatural power. That power is found in a change of heart so all-encompassing that Jesus likens it to being born again. A changed heart is God's work. A transformed heart is God's work. A changed life is all about following Jesus and the Holy Spirit is our sure comforter and guide. It is a deep, inner, heart work initiated and sustained by the Spirit at work within us. As we give ourselves over to Him and allow God to remake us in the image of Jesus, it increasingly results in a changed ways of thinking, living and relating to others.
"Jesus replied, 'Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.'" John 3:3
Pray this prayer with me: "Father, thank you for providing all we need as we set our sights on learning to live like Jesus lived. Your Spirit awakens us to life, opening our hearts and minds to a new way of living, remaking us in Jesus; image. Transform our hearts and minds to reflect Jesus - in whose name we pray, amen."
