A Daily Word - August 30

August 30

For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; - Romans 8:29

When I was a boy our small community didn’t qualify for Ringling Brothers, but a small circus visited us annually. I remember especially a toothless, defanged bear, dancing at the end of a chain. Decades later I remember how “unbearish” he looked. We’re like the poor animal. Sin diminished God’s image in us. The promise of God is that we are going to be brought back into the fullness of our being, which is conformity to Jesus Christ. We will no longer be less than what God designed humans to be because we will be conformed to all Jesus is.
