Pusey: to be like Him

Friday, December 22, 2023
    As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.
    —1 Corinthians 15:48-49 (NIV)
    My brethren, we must not, on this our day of rejoicing, content ourselves with even holy feelings and thankfulness; we must not even think that we joy in the Lord, unless we seek to become like the Lord. They only can joy in Him who are like Him; man, when humbled, in a Humble God.
    ... Edward B. Pusey (1800-1882), from The Incarnation, a Lesson of Humility, in Sermons during the season from Advent to Whitsuntide, Oxford: John Henry Parker, 1848, p. 68 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 15:48-49; Lev. 21:8; Isa. 53:2-4; Matt. 11:29; John 13:13-17; 1 Cor. 11:1; Eph. 4:22-24; 5:1-2; 1 Pet. 2:21; 1 John 2:4-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may become more like You.
