Put on Christ

Those who have accepted Jesus have the power to become sons of God like Jesus Himself is Son of God and that is the purpose for Him coming to this earth, was to lead many sons to glory, to make them children of God. We read in Romans 8:29,30 ”For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren; and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”
Those who have accepted Jesus have the power, the ability, to become children of God, sons of God but they must take on the likeness of Jesus, they must be conformed to the image of Jesus. Believers want salvation but they don’t want to be like Jesus. They don’t want to obey Jesus, they just want salvation because they don’t want to go to hell. If we are not conformed to the image of Jesus, if we do not become like Him, then we will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Paul writes to Timothy, 2 Timothy 2:11,12” It is a trustworthy statement: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him; 12IF WE ENDURE, WE SHALL ALSO REIGN WITH HIM;  If we deny Him, He will also deny us;”
We must be faithful until the end, we must endure and follow Jesus. We must be transformed to the likeness of Christ. We cannot be part of the world, we must be separate unto God. We must be conformed to the likeness of Jesus Christ. Many believers have idols in this world, they follow after people, they read their biographies, they idolize them, they run after them. Their opinions are formed by the people of this world.
If we are not conformed to the image of Christ, if we do not talk like Him, live like Him, become like Him, we cannot become sons of God. We must be conformed to that image of Christ and if we obey the words of Jesus as written in the gospels and if we follow after Jesus we will be rejected by this world, we will be despised by the world, we will not fit into the world but then we will fit into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Are you being conformed to the image of Christ or do you look like the world? The modern day church looks like the world, it STINKS! It is not suitable for the Kingdom of Heaven. Can Jesus be seen in YOU and in ME?
May Jesus bless you.
