Created in God's Image
"I am dark but beautiful, O women of Jerusalem . " - Song of songs 1:5
You were created in the image of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
You were designed to be a reflection of the Trinity.
You were formed by the glory of God, in the glory of God to radiate throughout eternity the glory of God.
The love of God, which is out of time, entered time in you and took up residence in your jar of clay.
And just as the three in one draw their identity from each other, we were created to draw our identity from our creator. This identity is the real treasure our hearts desire. And this identity is the value of our true worth.
To look for indentity in anything else diminishes our value, to each other and to ourself.
Our value is a reflection of our hearts treasure.
You are a child of your Father's love and you are a beautiful, captivating image of your father's love and everytime He looks at you it reminds him of the consuming passionate love that created you.
Above all else you are the climax, the pinnacle of creation and God sacrificed himself so you could run straight back into your Father's arms.
Your real identity is found and established in the heart of the Father's love.
