MORE LIKE HIM

MORE LIKE HIM
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

I cannot be who I want to be for one moment it seems … apart from Christ.
If I want to experience change, I must get alone with the One who has the power to change me.
If I want to experience growth, I must get alone with the One who will grow me.
The One who knows me, made me, conditioned me …
 He, alone, has the power to change me.
I must take myself to Him,
Gaze on Him,
Listen to Him,
Study Him,
Spend time with Him …
And in doing this I will change;
I will become more like Him.

It is in beholding Christ … we become more like Christ.
We reflect the image of the One we behold and He reflects His image through us.
Gaze long at Him,
Stay long with Him,
You'll become like Him ...
You'll change.

“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.
…Oh wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God … through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
Romans 7:18,24-25
