"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

The Image

"Hold an image of the life you want,
and that image will become fact."
~ Norman Vincent Peale

I thought about that quote for a few minutes while I was cleaning up from lunch yesterday, and then suddenly the deeper meaning sunk in.  Jesus is our pattern, the image of the life we want.  The longer we look at Him, study Him, and imitate Him, the closer our lives will mirror His.  Paul writes “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.” 2 Corinthians 3:18

So friends, I want to challenge you to hold the image of the life you want - the life of Jesus Christ - and little by little, that image will become fact.
