“For those whom he foreknew, he also predestined multi-conformable to the image of his Son, so that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.” (Romans 8:29)
We are “predestined multi-conformable* to the image of his son.”
The “conformings to the image of God’s son” are happening all the time, in multiple ways, in our lives. Watch for them. They are predestined to happen!
This is God’s prevenience-at-work ahead of time. As Jesus did, let’s believe and watch for what Papa Father is showing us to be and do. (John 5:19)
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10, ESV)
Watch throughout the day and night with eager anticipation! God is conforming you to be his “Christ-on-earth” child in multiple ways—24/7!
*”multi-conformables” in the original Greek text is an adjective modifying the noun “image.” Most translations make it a verb, as in “to be conformed.” While this may help the smoothness of reading, I believe it diminishes the adjective’s awesome meaning.
