"You are made in the image of what you desire,......."

A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire. Thomas Merton 

It has come upon me lately that if, as a Christian, Christ lives in and through me, and the Holy Spirit fills me with His thoughts, then when people are with me, they should sense that they have been in the presence of God. They should feel the touch of His love through my hands, the truth and wisdom of His life through my words, the generous forgiveness and grace of loyalty and goodness through my acts of friendship and good deeds. If my grid of life, so to speak, is to worship Him with my heart soul mind and strength every day, then I should be growing into His likeness as He lives His reality through my life. 

May we live into Him and into His will right where we are today.
