If you think it’s amazingly wonderful that Jesus is going to take us all to heaven, then prepare yourself for something even more mind-stretching: Jesus’ plan is to teach us to be like Him. Whoa!
Yes, Jesus intends to reproduce His character in us. If He’s caused us to be born again, then our destiny is to grow up. Why then don’t we grow up?
There are too many infants walking around, professing to born again, but continuing to engage in infant behavior rather than grow up. For this reason, the name Christian gets a bad rap and unbelievers give themselves a pass for not accepting the truth.
Let us fulfill our destiny. Let us who believe in Him and listen to Him, become like Him.
Then we will truly know Him, for it does take one to know one.
