In the beginning God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female. You were made in His likeness, that is your identity. When God looks at you, He doesn’t see a horrible sinner, He sees His most beloved creation. We were born into sin because of Adam, but because of Jesus we can be born again into sonship.
He did not die because we were sinners, He came to rid us of sin so we can come back to our created value and walk in our true identity as sons and daughters.
Some say that God moves in mysterious ways, but the mystery has already been revealed; it’s Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Do not look in the mirror anymore in self consciousness, in self doubt, in hatred, or in despair, but look in the mirror and see Christ in you, see a child of God who is full of hope, who is so loved and righteous in the sight of your Father.
When your eyes are fixed on the light, your whole body is full of light. Jesus said you are the light of the world, So fix your eyes on Him and let your light so shine!
