CQOD: 09/09/05 -- Manley: to be more like Christ

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 9, 2005
    For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
    -- Romans 8:29 (NIV)

    This is our great need, to be more like Christ, that His likeness may be seen in our lives; and this is just what is promised to us as we yield ourselves in full surrender to the working of His Spirit. Then, as we draw nearer to Christ, we shall be drawn nearer to His people; and in our search for unity with the members we shall be drawn closer to the Head.
    ... G. T. Manley, Christian Unity [1945]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I long to be more like you. Implant in me the love You have for your people.
