Conformed to the Image of Christ
  Romans 8:29 For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Jesus came to us at Bethlehem bearing the image of the invisible God (Co. 1:15; He. 1:3). His is the image of absolute perfection and holiness. God saw us and chose us in Him in eternity past (Ep. 1:4 ). There it was foreordained after the counsel of God's own will (Ep. 1:11) that a lamb would be slain to accomplish our salvation (Re.13:8; Jn.17:24; 1 Pe.1:20). We were chosen in Christ to be conformed to His image and to show forth His holiness and perfection.

We have forsaken sin and are striving for God's holiness and yet like the apostle Paul we know that we haven't fully obtained our goal. As we daily examine ourselves, we see the image of Jesus and cry out to be conformed to it. We find ourselves laying aside things that that are unnecessary. No we are not perfect but we see that we are being changed into the image of Christ, by the Spirit of God.

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

We have a promise of a final transformation, when we will put off the flesh that hinders us and be fully and completely conformed to the image of the One who saw us, loved us, died for us, empowered us, and Who is soon returning for us (1 Co. 15:49; Php.3:21; 1 Jn. 3:2).
