As Christ came in the image of the Father, we must conform to the image of Christ. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is the key to becoming Christ-like. It's fascinating to see what the Bible has to say about image. Genesis 1 seems to emphasize form and appearance. But as we progress through the Bible, we see more and more emphasis on the image of God's spiritual nature.
