WOW! An astonishing glimpse into The Mind of God. Was reading an article quoting Colossians 3:10: "And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." And something touched my heart and mind concerning that 2-syllable word: "renew." Why "renew?" Because, renewing something or someone implies a past existence. A baby is born new. Not renewed. I looked the word up in the dictionary and it does imply a former state, a restoring to a former state. So... if we were born in imperfection, what former state is Colossians speaking about? It is this: GOD is Love. HE loves His people so much, that when He looks at us, He sees who we would have been if we had been born perfect, if none of this mess had happened on this planet. HE sees us as we were, virtually, in perfection. And through Christ, by HIS Spirit, HE raises us to that level one step at a time unto HIS perfect kingdom. If that isn't love, I don't have a clue what is.
