Ephesians 4:13 “This work must continue until we are all joined together in what we believe and in what we know about the Son of God. Our goal is to become like a full-grown man—to look just like Christ and have all his perfection.”
The work of studying His Word, meditating on and discussing, for the purpose of greater understanding so that our minds are renewed, and our lives could be changed. The more changed we become, the more our lives can be lived victoriously, and the more we can reflect God to the rest of the world. Our goal is to be mature, displaying His character, to think and talk and act like Him; so that when others look at us we are just like Christ: Christ-ians.
Jesus paid the price for His Word to be made manifest in us. He went through all He did so that we have a chance to live heaven on earth.
“Abba, let Your Word be revealed to me to show me how my life was changed. By the power of Your Holy Spirit, let me experience the reality of all that You have already done when You gave me a new nature and a new heart. Let Jesus be reflected in my actions and in my words. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.”
