The first chapter of the book of Ephesians can serve as a helpful balance to how we ought to think and speak of ourselves.
When God desired to create something in His image, He created man. When God desired to reveal Himself in His fullness, He revealed Himself as a man. Humanity is essential in displaying who God is and that fact also says a lot about who we are.
Probably the most important question that can be asked is “Who is Jesus?” It’s answer is a matter of eternal life or death. Listen in to learn what it means that Jesus is fully human, fully God, and what implications this has for us.
There’s something amazing here. Particularly, it’s a glory that is so magnificent that it makes all of the sufferings of these present times seem trivial when set side-by-side. And the shocking thing is that I am not at all minimizing the suffering that’s going on in the world. Things really are as horrible as they seem and probably even more so than we realize, but just as horrible as things are now, the weight of glory awaiting us will be a million times heavier.
