Life as a River
"Oh No - I've become my father"
I am in 'that season of life' where somedays I look in the mirror
or I will do something, and I think,
"Oh no, I've become my father".
And of course there are the moments
now more frequent than ever
when my wife will say:
"You are so like your Father"
Now don't get me wrong. I loved my father
who is now with the Lord-
But there did come that day,
when I also thought:
"I will never be 'that way'.
or maybe more often:
"I will never look that old'.
Well guess what Mark - that day has come
"Are you becoming like Me - your heavenly Father?"
has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,
we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18
Am I being transformed into the image of Christ?
- My face (countenance) was His?
- My work was done as He would work?
- My communication with others was as He would communicate?
- My expressions showed love for others
What would happen if EACH DAY I asked Him:
- Where are we going today?
- What will we do today?
- What will we say today?
- Will I look like you today?
Will I hear others say: "You are becoming just like you Father"? Oh, I pray so!
Thomas O. Chisholm
Oh! to be like Thee, oh! to be like Thee,
Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art;
Come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness;
Stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.
