As born-again children of God, the longer we live, the more we should look like and act like the risen son, Jesus Christ.  We are predestined to be conformed into His image and to be the bearers of His dominion in the earth.

Romans 8:29 (AKJV)

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
