How can we become more Christ-like? We must realize that Christ has reconciled us to Himself; He is continuing to sanctify us and to make us more like Himself. This journey of sanctification is both individual and corporate, and one that Jesus will be faithful to bring to completion. Paul encourages us to be confident in our partnership with each other in the gospel. There are no perfect churches, but we should pray, partner, give thanks, and serve together in joy. Despite our individual backgrounds, we have all been called to be in partnership with other believers, to be likeminded in our mission of proclaiming the gospel.
