Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is, 1 John 3:2
Who we aspire to be like go a long way to affecting who we become. There are somany role models in the world today, and it’s quite easy to narrow our mind down to anyone who completely tickle our fancy and make conscious efforts to talk, act and become like them…..This might seem perfect but the end result is a substandard version of the original copy. This is the common reason why many are locked up in the box of identity crisis.
Are you aspiring to be like any man???….Remember that God never created you in the image of another man, neither does He desires that you become a counterfeit of His original image….God’s ultimate desire is to see Himself through your eyes, that’s the reason He gave His prototype in the person of the Christ, (John 10:30) so that we can set our eyes on Him and be transformed into the fullness of His personality. Everyone who ever gained kingdom relevance touched a certain dimension of His glory and the same transformational resources is available to all who will develop an unquenchable hunger to become like Jesus, He is the sun of righteousness, (Malachi 4:2), and He said, if you hunger and thirst after righteousness, you will be filled, (Matt.5:6), meaning He is ever ready to fill us with Himself if only we will meet the criteria to hunger and thirst after Him.
I know you love your man of God, that’s lovely but if you aspire to be like him, you will lose out on originality and end up a photocopy of God’s prototype, everyone who is genuinely of Christ should make you aspire to be like Christ.
Let’s pray: Father release upon me an unquenchable hunger for you, open my eyes to see you in everything and in everyone, Amen.
