Today is my grandson’s birthday. I was thinking about how we look like our parents because of genetics. Trey looks like his mother, almost a carbon copy. However, she has a mild manner, remains calm in challenging situations, and is very even-tempered, but not Trey. Trey may not look like anyone from our family, but he acts like it! His personality is in the image of his grandfather Richard, who is anything but calm. If personalities had a reflection, Trey would be the perfect replica of Richard.
When we trust Jesus and accept him as our Savior, we transform into his image. Don’t get me wrong, this process can take some time and requires a daily renewal of our minds, but how awesome is it that we reflect the image of Jesus and are transformed from glory to glory? We are so privileged. We go from looking like our parents to becoming the image of Christ. People try to better themselves by making more money when all they need to do is accept Jesus as their Savior; that’s when the true transformation begins.
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. 2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV
This is an old picture of them together, but it reflects their personalities.
