I was listening to some music as I studied this evening (it helps cover up all the innumerable other noises that distract me easily) and one line just really caught my ear and full attention. The song ended,
"Lord, whatever it takes to be more like You,
that's what I'll be willing to do."
That just kind of grabbed hold of me. Could I honestly make that very same statement? That's some food for thought. How important is it to me that I be like Christ? Am I willing to do, or perhaps go through whatever it takes to be more like Christ?
Well, that's all I had to share just now and I need to get back to studying, but let me encourage you to think on that statement too. After all, the Christian life is all about being changed into the image of Christ. Should we not be willing for whatever it takes?
