Thought For Today - November 18
Desire to be like Jesus !.
Oh, That we might be like Jesus! What a high and holy and noble calling to be formed in his likeness , and to be joint heirs with him! To have the mind of Christ; to have the heart of Christ; and the attitudes of Christ; that we might know him whom to know aright is eternal and everlasting life.
He who was from before the beginning and is and shall be, let us worship him and let us desire to cease to be what we are and become what he is. Oh, to be like Jesus! God hath appointed him heir of all things. Oh, to be like Jesus, the brightness of God's glory, and the express image of his person. Oh, to be like Jesus, who being so much better than angels and hath obtained a more excellent name than they.
We will never attain to the perfection which is in Christ while we are in this body, but we ought to desire to be made perfect as he is perfect. God looks upon the heart, and the motives, and honors good desires.
Oh, to be like Jesus! "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he hath made the worlds; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the majesty on high; being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they." Hebrews 1: 1-4.
