How in the World Can I Be Like Jesus?

I can’t even swim, much less walk on water.

God wants you to be like His Son in your character, that is, what you are like on the inside. There is no outward ideal when it comes to looks or abilities. But there is an inward ideal. It’s found in Galatians 5:22, 23“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

God wants you to allow His Spirit to control you so you will be like His Son.
