To Be Like Him

Our only purpose in life is to become like Him. No matter the route He has chosen for us, it is His business to make that happen. He is God. We are only His servants. We do not choose how He is going to conform us to His Son, for that would be to exalt our own wills against the plan of God. So, the believer must say, “Here am I; Send me” (Isaiah 6:8b). Then, spiritual adventure begins to happen. We never know what is coming next. We may not know why things happen, but we know that we can count it all joy. God’s justice will never let the sorrow and torture of inflicted wounds made by Satan’s kingdom prevail. But in the meantime, we must realize that we are dead, indeed, to sin, but we are made alive through Christ.

Do not intend to allow yourself to have a bad day, and do not expect to be depressed for one moment. Do not get angry as a means of saving your self-life. You may get angry at Satan and his demons because of what they do, but you need not to “go through” a single thing this week. Do you know why? Because you are seated in heavenly places above all of that (2).
