Conformed to the image of His Son.

Conformed to the image of God’s Son
All the attributes and activities of God are found in Christ in all their perfection.
Christ is the fullness of God.
The church is the fullness of Christ.
What is the essence of who God is?
Omnipresent ( present everywhere)
Truth ( I am the Way, and the Truth, ….)
In Christ, in the Head, we have access to the human likeness of the attributes of God.
We clearly are not now and never will be
We have the power of the Spirit available to us.
We can attain knowledge, even the knowledge of the Son of God.
We will not be immutable – but we can become steadfast, holding onto the Head.
We cannot say that we are the resurrection and the life – only Christ is that …
…but we have been given eternal life in Christ.
We will not always be all-loving, but we can walk in love.
Eph 4:32 - Eph 5:1-2
We cannot BE God… but we can be imitators of God.
We can behold His glory, and as we do so, we are being transformed into that same image.
Speaking gifts are gifts to the congregation to equip us for the work of service.
Exercise your gift! That means – USE IT!
