We have been made into His image, and it says in Ephesians that we were created to be like God:

Ephesians 4:20-24
Put off the old. Put on the new. To get the new, you have to repent. John the Baptist said to repent and make the crooked roads in your heart straight to be able to receive Jesus Christ in your heart. What you are going to eat, your menu for the day, should transform into a menu of God’s work. Start being concerned about God, His business, His Church, His Kingdom, and the hereafter. It is a whole new life that brings blessings and jewels and answered prayers. One focus is on self and one is on God.
