WHO DO I LOOK?
One of the favorite get-away spots for Queen Elizabeth is Sandringham, her palace in windswept Norfolk. She enjoys going for long walks in the countryside with her dogs at her side. Sometimes she goes into the village Sandringham to shop. While she was there one day, a local resident remarked to her, “Why, you look just like the Queen.” Queen Elizabeth replied, “How very reassuring!”
For a Christian, the highest compliment is to be told that one resembles the Prince of Peace, the son of the King of Kings.
Those who live in intimate relationship with Jesus Christ gradually begin to take on some of His characteristics – His compassion, patience, purity and love. Gradually He replaces our selfishness with His caring, our greed with His generosity, our racism with His inclusiveness. Is the spirit of Christ shining through your spirit?
