DAY 9 Transformed into His likeness

God made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21

An exchange took place on the cross: Jesus gave us everything that belonged to Him as the Son of God, as well as the blessing He received from an entire life of walking in obedience. In return, we gave Him our rebellion, curses and the punishments we deserved for our disobedience. He carried the sins of all mankind, so we could be changed in His image and transformed in the likeness of the Father. The Bible says, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Cor. 5:21).

In the beginning, Adam and Eve were created in the image and likeness of God. The image is the resemblance we have to our Creator given to us through His divine genes. The likeness leads us to think, believe and act like Him. As such, man’s original mindset was a reflection of the Lord’s and worked closely with His supernatural power. This is why the first humans manifested the will of God on the earth so strongly. However, because of rebellion and disobedience, we lost the mindset of heaven, and our spirit was disconnected from eternity. On the cross, Jesus restored our images and transformed us into His likeness.

When you receive the revelation of the truth of Christ, your image will begin to change (remember that a child inherits the genes of his father. At the same time, you will start to resemble Him in His way of thinking, believing and acting.

Pray with me
Lord Jesus, I ask for forgiveness for my futile way of life. From now I abandon the life of sin, passivity, carnality, selfishness and idolatry, and begin to be transformed into Your image and likeness. Transform my body, my mind, my words and my behavior to reflect the divine being that You created with Your own hands. Thank You Jesus!
