One of my favorite songs speaks about getting closer to God and looking more like Him.
Here are some of the lyrics:
I JUST WANNA LOOK A LITTLE MORE LIKE YOU
EVERY DAY’S ANOTHER STEP FORWARD
I, I GET A LITTLE CLOSER
Thanking him for his help, we said goodbye to each other.
I drove away comparing what he had just said to the lyrics of the song that I like so much.
This young man was training with intent.
He knew what he wanted, and he was setting his course in order to reach that goal.
The crown of that goal was to be just like his dad.
“Like a child walking in their father’s shoes, I just wanna look a little more like you….”
What is my goal in life, really?
What is my goal for today?
Is it to be a little more like God?
Every day, changing and getting closer to Him?
If someone asks me about my goals, would I tell them that I just want to be more like Jesus?
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
–1 John 2:6
