ďGodís entire purpose for our lives is that we become like his Son,
whose love for God and for humanity compelled him to sacrifice all.Ē

Romans 8:28-29 We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. For whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face seeing the glory of the Lord as in a mirror,are transformed into the same image from glory to glory . . .

Ephesians 4:22,24  . . . put away, as concerning your former way of life, the old man, that grows corrupt after the lusts of deceit . . . and put on the new man, who in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of truth.

Philippians 2:5-8 Have this in your mind, which was also in Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, didnít consider equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, the death of the cross.

1 John 4:16-17  . . . God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. In this love has been made perfect among us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, even so are we in this world..
