Restoring the Image (Conclusion) – To Be Like Jesus

“A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher. (Luke 6:40)

As I was having my quiet time this morning, I was reminded once again how we are to live our lives. We are to be connected to the Vine and apart from it we can do nothing (Jn 15.4-5). And, if we are connected to the Vine, we will bear much fruit and glorify the Father (Jn 15.8). We will accomplish our original design: we return to the image of God. Jesus is the only way to accomplish such a monumental and magnificent undertaking (Jn 14.6).

My objective in this series has been to illuminate three basic biblical concepts: first, we are created in His image for His glory, second, we are trying to restore that broken image ravaged by our rebellion, and third, the only way to do so is by embracing Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior through discipleship; becoming like Him (Lk 6.40). There are so many good things that distract us from the one great pursuit. My prayer for you and I is that we will “fix our eyes on Jesus” (Heb 12.2). And in doing so, we will become the people we were meant to be and bring God the glory He is due.

Follow Jesus!
