Christlikeness Is the Goal

The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.”Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT)

Sometimes when we think about all the changes that we know the Lord wants to make in us and our situation, it can be overwhelming. In our actions, attitudes, thoughts and words we have so far to go if Christlikeness is the goal. Knowing this, we may have a hard time loving ourselves, much less truly believing that God can love us.

Today’s passage from Lamentations is a great reminder that God is a God of love and His love is unending. His mercy never ceases, and if we are serious about change, each day is a new opportunity for us to run to His love and experience His mercy.

Talk to God today, and thank Him for His unending mercy and love. Ask Him to remind you of these things as you allow Him to make the changes in you that will make you more like Jesus. Celebrate His love and mercy today!
