1 John 3:2 (NIV) …But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
Daniel always wondered why David had unique mannerisms when he prayed or led prayers. When he finally visited David’s church and saw their General Overseer in action, it all clicked. He realized that David and his friends were subconsciously imitating the style of their respected and admired leader.
The more you look upon a particular person with reverence and admiration, the more like that person you become. This happens unconsciously but it really happens to everyone.
In today’s Bible text, we see that we shall be like Christ when he appears, for we shall see Him as He is. Christ has put in you the nature and the ability to be like Him. This nature is activated when you behold Him.
Christians are to look unto Jesus always (see Heb 12:2). We are to behold the mirror of God’s word and see Christ who is the image of what we are to become (see 2 Cor 3:18). The more of Christ we see, the more of Christ we become.
Do you see Christ in your world; controlling everything? Or are you more conscious of what the devil is doing than what Christ is doing?
Go into today determined to live a Christ-centered life; bring Christ into all you do by always submitting to His government and Lordship, while giving thanks in all things. Remember that all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him (see Mat 28:18) so He is truly in control of everything in your life.
Prayer: thank you lord for calling me and making me your own. I pray you help me daily behold you more and more. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
