My identity can only be defined by what God says about me… He defines me and what he says of me is awesomeness!!
What he sees in me is HIM! He created me pre-dirt with his DNA. I have His DNA!! I was made in His image!
What’s true of Him is true of me!!
2 Corinthians 3:18
The days of window-shopping are over! In him every face is unveiled. In gazing with wonder at the blueprint likeness of God displayed in human form, we suddenly realize that we are looking at ourselves! Every feature of his image is mirrored in us! This is the most radical transformation engineered by the Spirit of the Lord; we are led from an inferior mind-set to the revealed endorsement of our authentic identity. Mankind is his glory!
12 Everyone who realizes their association is IN HIM, convinced that he is their original life and that His name defines them, in them he endorses the fact that they are indeed his offspring, begotten of him; he sanctions the legitimacy of their sonship.
13 These are they who discover their genesis in God beyond their natural conception! Man began in God. We are not the invention of our parents
14 Suddenly the invisible eternal Word takes on visible form! The Incarnation! In Him, and now confirmed in us! The most accurate tangible display of God’s thought finds expression in human life. The Word became a human being; we are His address; He resides in us! He captivates our gaze! The glory we see there is is not a religious replica; He is the authentic begotten son! The glory (that Adam lost) returns in fullness! Only grace can communicate truth in such a complete context!
