“He is the image of the invisible God” – Colossians 1:15
Paul says that Jesus Christ and the eternal God are equal – that the One is like the other.
This truth stirs one’s soul, and you may feel that such spiritual heights are beyond your reach. Jesus lived on such a high moral level, setting examples of how to respond in certain situations, that you cannot live up to His example on your own. Yet this truth can also inspire and elevate us.
The living Christ does not condemn people for their sins, but inspires them to reach unprecedented heights. Depending on the strength and intensity of our devotion to Him, we can, in a small way, become like Jesus. And that is God’s purpose for your life.
Stand by me, Lord Jesus, help me to grow into the likeness of your image through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
