We are image bearers, not image makers

By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the one who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence. 2 Pet. 1:3-4

He is the source of what we need to live the life He intends for us; and knowing Him is the source of change. We cannot create, manufacture, fake, or accomplish His image in ourselves. We may reflect His image because we are looking at Him, but ultimately He is the one who reconciles us to His image.

Lord, help me to stop trying to do and spend more time simply knowing You!
