It's Good To Remember This
Even if you don't believe you can become more like Jesus, even if you can't see any way the old you will ever fade away, even if your family and friends don't believe this Christianity deal is anything more than a passing fad with you and that you will fail...
Even if no one else believes in you...
In fact, He can already see you changing, already picture you becoming more like Jesus.
"...those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son..."
He knows you can do it. And he's planning on your seeing it through - walking with Him, relying on His Holy Spirit to guide and direct your paths while he is working everything together for your good.
See the thing is - He's planning a BIG family reunion.
"...that he (meaning Jesus) might be the firstborn among many brothers."
That's us folks. We're part of those many brothers who God knew would be reborn in Jesus Christ. We're part of the people from every nation who will gather around the throne having been made pure through the blood of the Lamb. That's us! We win!!!!!!
So we shouldn't end this passage doing anything but praising God.
Because God will see us through to completion through the power of His Holy Spirit.
God believes in you, beloved. Even if no one else (including you) does. And He's going to see you though.
Grace and peace,
