The True Foundation: Christlikeness

By Francis Frangipane

Christ Himself is the eternal blueprint for our lives.  Only in studying Him, in measuring ourselves by Him, do we grow securely upon the foundation of God. 

Beloved, we were created to become like Christ.  Yet, some would lead us to a lesser destiny.  They teach that a stumbling, disobedient people can somehow also be the same "overcomers" spoken of in the Sacred book.  Yet, God's plan has not faded out or become obsolete!  Even as Christ has not changed, so neither has the plan of God for the church.  Our transformation will burn in God's heart "until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fulness of Christ" (Eph 4:13).
