In his Turning Point Daily Devotional for April 16, David Jeremiah writes: Some time ago, The New York Times reported a study showing that couples who are happily married for long periods really do begin to look alike. Even if the man and woman bore no resemblance at their wedding, they showed marked resemblances later in life. Moreover, the more marital happiness a couple reported, the greater the increase in facial resemblance. The change apparently is due to decades of shared emotions and similar lifestyles.

As time goes by, Christians increasingly should resemble Jesus. After all, we’re the bride of Christ, and we share His emotions and lifestyle. Romans 8:29 says God has predestined us to be “conformed to the image of His Son”; and according to 2 Corinthians 3:18, the Holy Spirit transforms us by stages into the image of Christ.

Today someone will study your attitudes, words and deeds. Make sure they see Jesus in you. We are His reflectors to the world.
