A man prayed to the Lord: “Lord, make me like you; may my words & thoughts be like yours; may my actions produce great fruit…”
This was his regular prayer.
Then one day a voice from within – perhaps the Holy Spirit, perhaps his own mind – simply said one word: “Why?”
“What do you mean, ‘Why?’ Lord it’s a standard prayer!”
But why did he want to be like the Lord? Why do we want to be like Jesus?
1. So people will think highly of us?
2. For God’s Glory
3. Because the Lord is pleased with Jesus
