TAKE ON THE IMAGE OF GOD
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Saturday, 29th July, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
(2 Corinthians 3:18)
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

It is quite possible for two individuals to have the same likeness and yet maintain different personalities. This is because a man’s personality consists of his looks and his response, which together is referred to as his image. In the same way, just as salvation restores man to the likeness of God, it is fellowship with Jesus that gives him God’s image, bringing the believer into total conformity to the image and likeness of God.
God expects every believer to be like Him not just in nature but also in character, and our scriptural text today shows us how He has planned for this to become a reality. He wants us to be conformed to Jesus Christ, who the Bible says is the express representation of His look and behaviour (Heb. 1:2). This is learning to respond like God, to walk like Him, talk like Him and get the same results as He would get. Glory to God!
Our primary reason therefore for meditating on God’s Word is so we might take up His image as we learn and imbibe His character until we can subdue the world, the flesh and the devil just like our Father would. This is the essence of our Christian walk; it should be your focus today as you spend time studying and meditating the Word of God. Halleluyah!

Let’s pray for Palestine 🇵🇸…
Majority are Muslims. Estimates are that 70% of Gaza lives in deep poverty and 80% are dependent upon external aid. Widespread unemployment and Israel’s imposition of economic controls prevent the majority from working their way out of poverty.
🙏🏼We are praying that peace and unity will reign in the nation.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Lord, help me to conform to the image of Christ in Jesus name.
