Summary: Is it possible to be like Jesus in today's world? Examine what it means to be like Christ, and be challenged to follow Him wholeheartedly and be transformed in the process. "A DISCIPLE . . . WILL BE LIKE HIS TEACHER." (Luke 6:40) What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? The ultimate goal of discipleship is to be like the Teacher-to be like Jesus Himself. Every Christian wants to understand what that means. But even if we understand it, is it possible?

Michael Wilkins asserts that it's not only possible, it's a life that all Christians are called to-not just a select few. So why do we so seldom experience it? As Wilkins points out, even the first followers of Jesus had a hard time grasping what it meant to be His disciples. Like them, our difficulty often lies in not clearly understanding who Jesus is, not recognizing the resources available to us as God's children, or not believing who we are to be as Christ's followers.
But like the early disciples, our lives can radically change. If we want to follow Jesus, we can become like Him. "Jesus takes us exactly as He finds us," writes Wilkins, "and transforms us into His likeness." So come, learn what it means to walk with Jesus and reflect His image to the real world.
