Construction Zone 10: God's Purpose for His Children
What is God's main purpose for His children while they live on Earth?
God's main purpose for His children is that they would bring Him glory by growing to be more and more like His Son Jesus in they think, say, and do. Romans 8:29b –
To be conformed to the image of His Son.
This Truth Makes
Romans 8:29 teaches us that God’s plan and goal for His people is that they should be conformed to (changed into) the image of His Son, Jesus Christ.
God’s reason for saving people is much bigger than just making sure they get into heaven someday. God’s children will be changed to become more like God’s Son. Salvation
begins a change that keeps going on, little by little, all our lives.
God begins working right away in a new believer. As soon as someone is born again, God starts working some deep and serious changes in that “newborn” soul to help him or her “grow up” into a Christlike person. It is impossible to become a “Christian” and not change to be more like Christ.
