BE CHRISTLIKE
READ GENESIS 1:26, 27
MEMORIES:

Then God said, "Let Us make man in our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

(Genesis 1:26)
When God said, Let Us make make man in Our image, this image refers to character likeness. He meant that we were going to take on His nature, His character, as reflected in His son Jesus. In Colossians 1:15, Paul tells us that Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. As believes, we are to be transformed into His image and likeness.
The greatest goal of every believers, and certainly those of us who want to be used by God in positions of leadership, should be christlikeness. We should want to handle situations and treat people the way Jesus would. That should want to handle situations and treat people the way Jesus would. That should be our goal. Jesus is to be our example.
In John 13:15, He said to His disciple, after washing their feet like a servant, "For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. And Peter tells us in 1 Peter 2:21" "For to this you were called (it is inseparable from your vocation), because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example (His personal example), that you should follow His steps". The vocation, the high calling of every believers, is to be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.
God is going to keep working with each of us until we get to the place where we act the way Jesus would act in every situation of life, until we manifest the same kind of fruit of the spirit that He manifested.
PRAYER POINTS
1. Forgive me, oh Lord, for my past sin of not living as expected of me.
2. Lord, let the image of Christ be formed in me, so that I can live Christly.
3. Oh God, help our leaders in every sector, to pursue christlikeness as their method of leadership.
