Going on As God’s Child

Description

God’s covenant children are “predestined to become conformed to the image” of Christ.

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)

“I’m afraid I’m jelling into the kind of person I don’t want to be,” the fellow told me. There’s a big difference between “jelling” and “forming.” Paul writes his spiritual “children” at Galatia that he labors so that Christ might be “formed in you” (Galatians 4:19). God’s covenant children are “predestined to become conformed to the image” of Christ. Apart from Him you may “jell” into something you don’t want to be, but God’s promise is to form you into Christlikeness.
