He is the image of the invisible God. This attribute of Jesus has got me thinking so much these past few days.
If we are to be like Jesus then we are to be image bearers. The image of the invisible God.
In a chaotic world, we may just be the only Jesus they see.
I have felt darkness and I have seen the true light of Jesus.
When He brought me out of living in sin and from calling myself worthless, impure, not wanted… “well everyone already thinks I’ve done that so what does it matter now?” Was a toxic thought I allowed myself to believe as a 17 year old. My purity I held dear until I just didn’t feel like I was worth it anymore.
I’m 32 now… just like when I turned 18 and the Lord called me out of those toxic thoughts and sinful lifestyle.
He is still pursuing me.
But if I’m not careful I can’t hear Him in the middle of my day to day.. if I’m not careful I get too busy. Can you relate?
So I’m gonna seek.
I’m gonna lean in.
I’m gonna read His Word before I work on my house.
I’m going to ask Him to help me die to my flesh so His voice is the louder than the world.
I’m going to keep teaching my kids His Word and definitely showing them grace with all my mistakes.
And I’m going to ask Him to help me submit to my husband even when I feel my way is right sometimes. We are a team.
Depth, substance, awe and wonder are missing from our lives in this broken generation.
We MUST, at all cost, pursue Jesus. Pursue holiness. Pursue righteousness and pursue a life that bears HIS IMAGE!
Do you long for more of Jesus?
“He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
