Every person alive is in the process of becoming more—or less—like who they were made to be. But who are we? What are we here for? And how do people change? The gospel reveals that Jesus is the answer to all three questions: We are made in his image, and we are called to become more like him in all our thoughts, desires, and character. Yet this transformation is impossible to maintain by self-improvement and moral restraint alone. Rather, it takes a gradual process of “working out what God works in” through the saving grace of Jesus and the power of his Spirit.
