Becoming More Like Jesus - Doug Reed - Devotion

Becoming More Like Jesus!

Recently, my son Josh and I were asked to stand next to one another. I thought, well that’s rather odd. What’s up? Well, they wanted to see if we resembled each other in likeness. With a short glance, the response was, “Oh yeah, dad and son sure do look alike.”

I Believe

We live what we believe. True belief is acted on–it’s lived out!

Believe

We Live What We Believe!

What we believe determines what we do and how we live. For example, if we have been told all our life that we are a worthless loser, unwanted, unloved, and will not amount to anything, then we will live just like that.

I shouldn’t, but I find it amazing how Jesus shows up in the most unexpected places. He’s good at that, isn’t He?
