Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

July 18, 2011 (to become like Christ)

to become like Christ

“Perhaps the most wonderful thing of all is this:
God lifts us not only from what we are
by nature to what Adam was in the Garden of Eden,
but to what Adam was to become in the presence of God,
and would have been had he persevered in obedience.
The gospel does not make us like Adam in his innocence –
it makes us like Christ,
in all the perfection of His reflection of God.”
- Sinclair Ferguson

“To become like Christ
is the only thing in the world worth caring for,
the thing before which every ambition of man
is folly and all lower achievement vain.”
- John Drummond
