The Image of Jesus

People spend vast amounts of money to follow after their idols, to portray a certain image. They buy certain motorcars, motorbikes, they wear certain brand clothes, they have their bodies pierced and tattooed to look like certain people that they follow so that they can portray a certain image.
If we follow Jesus Christ we will be changed into His likeness. We will portray the image of Christ. The image of Jesus Christ that we will portray will be the TRUE IMAGE. Not the one of the Catholic church or of Hollywood or of many pictures that you see, the Jesus that is preached in many churches, it will be the TRUE JESUS, because if we walk with Jesus we will become LIKE HIM. We will take on His likeness. Jesus Christ was rejected by men, He was persecuted, He was crucified, He was stripped naked and hung on a pole. Jesus Christ became of NO REPUTATION at all. That is the image that you will take on if you follow Jesus Christ. You will be hated, rejected, persecuted, and you might get killed if you follow Jesus Christ and become like Him.
That is why the world hates the true image of Jesus Christ. That is why they put on a false image for Jesus and that is why they follow a false Jesus not the true Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Are you going after Jesus Christ, becoming like Him? Are you changed into His likeness? Or are you following after idols? Are you trying to be like other people, wearing certain brand clothes, spending your money on images that you follow instead of following Jesus Christ? Are you taking on the image of the REAL Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.
