Becoming the Person You Were Created to Be
May 10, 2012
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:1
If you ask people today, “Who is the most outstanding figure in human history?”, even many unbelievers will say, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Why is that? It’s because Jesus fulfilled all the ideals of personhood. In Him we see courage. In Him we see confidence. In Him we see conviction and all of the qualities we inherently want to possess.
A university professor was once asked by his students why he became a Christian. He answered, “I became a Christian in order to become a man!” It’s one thing to be a man; it’s another thing to be God’s man. And Jesus demonstrates for all of us the fulfillment of perfect humanity.
Yet sadly today, the lines that form the standard of what is upright and honorable have been blurred by the moral relativism of our culture. Because of this, many people today don’t bother discerning what’s right and what’s wrong anymore. But the truth is that every single person needs that kind of ideal which they can imitate with their lives.
When you receive Jesus, you receive the fulfillment of all that He is. You can become the man or the woman that God designed you to be. No matter your status or your situation in life, Jesus can bring you back to Him and fulfill you when you do!
BECOME THE PERSON GOD DESIGNED YOU TO BE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST!

Unlock the Power of Persistent Prayer
If you’re like most Christians, you would agree that prayer is a vital part of a vibrant spiritual life. But when it comes to your personal prayer life, perhaps there’s a difference between what you say and what you do.
To me, the reason for this is clear: most people don’t really know how to pray. That’s why I want to send you my brand new book, The Promise of Persistent Prayer. In this book I show you how you can tap into the promises of God and open the floodgates of His blessings. And I share with you the one thing that really matters when it comes to making your prayers heard.
The Promise of Persistent Prayer is my gift to thank you for your donation to PowerPoint this month, so please request your copy when you give. It’s my hope that this book will show you how to break out of the ordinary and unlock the power of prayer in your life!
