Who have been the people that you have wanted to be like? I expect we all have that person that stood out in our mind as someone special, and so someone we wanted to be like. But what do you then do with that desire?
You can change your habits to make yourself more like that person. You can study that person more and more so you can understand who they really are and change your life accordingly. You can do all kinds of things.
But what happens when you find out that person isn’t the ‘hero’ you first thought they were? It is the tragic reality for many of us that the people we most wanted to be like turned out to be the kind of person we don’t want to be.
My desire for you is that Christ will be formed in you.
