Day 22 – CREATED TO BECOME LIKE CHRIST — 40 Days Purpose Driven Life Journey by Rick Warren


As the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more – 2 Corinthians 3:18b

Becoming like Christ is a long, slow process of growth, Spiritual maturity is neither instant nor automatic; it is a gradual, progressive development that will take the rest of your life. Referring to this process, Paul said, “This will continue until we are… mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him” (Ephesians 4:13)
You are a work in progress. Your spiritual transformation in developing the character of Jesus will take the rest of your life, and even then it won’t be completed here on earth. It will only be finished when you get to heaven or when Jesus returns. At that point, whatever unfinished work on your character is left will be wrapped up. The Bible says that when we are finally able to see Jesus perfectly, we will become perfectly like him: “We can’t even imagine what we will be like when Christ returns. But we do know that when he comes we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is” (1 John 3:2)
