Strange is the word!
If I have the mind of Jesus, why do I still think so much like me?
Why do I still have the hang-ups of Max?
Why do I still hate traffic jams?
God has ambitious plans for us. The same one who saved your soul longs to remake your heart. His plan is nothing short of a total transformation:
You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you. This new life brings you the true knowledge of God (Colossians 3:10 NCV).
Let's fix our eyes on Jesus! Perhaps in seeing him, we will see what we can become.
