Have you ever been asked:
“How come God has a Son if He isn’t human and He doesn’t have a wife?’
Most of us try to answer that question with our physical understanding and start trying to explain the virgin birth. The only thing is, that often leads to more confusion as it only explains the physical manifestation of something quite profound.
When we say A is a true son of B, it’s usually because they share a resemblance, either physically or character-wise, and not particularly because B gave birth to A. Bearing that in mind, we turn back to the Bible, which addresses Jesus as the Son of God. In this sense, the Bible doesn’t mean a biological son, but rather, a perfect image. Jesus (the image) was such a flawless illustration of His Father (the template), the the Father was well pleased. Every time He was confirmed a Son, He was doing something only the Father would do. He was (and still is) a perfect reflection of our heavenly Father. And that is the sort of life we have been called to live.
When we came to Christ and He gave us His life, He took away our sin-riddled image and gave us His own. That’s the only reason we can stand before the throne of the Father without fear, guilt, condemnation or inferiority. Because, already, on the inside we are already a reflection of the Father. The Bible says that we behold the life to come as though through a looking glass: that’s because that image is still being obscured by our flesh, our humanity.
And so, one day, flesh stripped away, humanity stripped away, it’s just going to be me and my Father, and my brethren, all of us images of the Father, starting with the Firstborn, Jesus. I’m going to see it clearly, because imperfection will all be gone.
In the meanwhile, I’m going to keep walking the walk, and I sure hope to see you there.
I’m super excited. Are you?
