This morning I received the following message from Bible for You – a great daily email service.

“We become more and more like Him” 2 Corinthians 3:18
‘HAPPY NEW YEAR!’ is what most of us will be shouting at midnight tonight. New Year’s resolutions will be made, hoping a new ‘thinner, fitter, healthier me’ will emerge in 2011. The Bible says, ‘become more and more like Him.’ So how about we make this our New Year’s resolution – everyday choosing to become more and more like Jesus? How will it happen? Well, to make us more Christ-like, God will use His Word, other people, and difficult circumstances. God’s Word provides the truth we need to know, God’s people provide the support we need to grow, and difficult circumstances will provide the environment we need to show Christ-likeness. If you apply God’s Word, connect regularly with other believers, and learn to trust God in every situation, you will become more like Jesus. Count on it – it will happen! ‘God wants us to grow up …We take our lead from Christ …. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love… no going along with the crowd … everything – and I do mean everything – connected with that old way of life has to go. It’s rotten through and through. Get rid of it! And then take on an entirely new way of life – a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working itself into your conduct as God accurately reproduces His character in you. (Eph. 4:14-24 TM)
