As a Christ follower we strive to become Christ-like. After all, that’s the process of sanctification.
To be like Jesus means to be sinless, abounding in love, compassion, selfless. To be like Jesus is to have self-discipline, joy, peace, patience, and so on.
I have learned that to become more like Jesus I must be willing to allow God to transform me. That means willing to have God perform surgery on your heart so that it beats for the things of Him.
