Jesus Christ is the express image of God, that means He is the image and likeness of God, the writer of Hebrews says He is the radiance of God’s glory, the exact representation of God’s being.
We were made in the image and likeness of God.
That means that Jesus Christ is exactly who and what God has made us, as he is so are we in this world. That’s why we are said to be IN HIM, which means we are existing in who and what Jesus Christ is, Jesus Christ is our true self and identity.
I was sharing yesterday on Facebook Live that nobody can look directly at his own face with his own eyes, that every image of ourselves we have is by the help of some reflective surface like a mirror, or some means of recording like a picture or video.
In the same line, Jesus Christ is the image of ourselves which we see when we look into the word of God. That is why we are commanded to fix our eyes on Jesus. Fix your mind on the word of God, keep your words in consonance with the word of God, walk(engage life) as Jesus did, with the same mindset, attitude, and bold authority, because you are exactly the same.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV
As I was saying yesterday, the single most important thought you will ever have is Jesus Christ, because then you have the perfect self image of yourself, your true and best self.
Remember that the bible says we are transformed by the renewing of our mind(thoughts). So as you learn Jesus through the word of God, your thoughts match your perfect self, and you are being so transformed into your perfect self, the you that God made.
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV
Here is the action point of this post; meditate the word of God knowing that it shows everything about you, meditate on Jesus.
THIS IS HOW THIS WHOLE THING BECOMES REAL TO YOU. MEDITATE
