Revealing the Image of Love

God's nature always reveals redemption and a ministry of reconciliation. People who cannot forgive and forget have forgotten how to receive the resurrection power of love. Imagine it. Jesus died for the one they are accusing while that person was in sin. Thank God, Jesus didn't quit while we were still unredeemed sinners. He died for us, and He has made us perfect and unblameable in His sight!

How good it is to know that the Holy Spirit seals us forever (Ephesians 1:13,14; 4:30). He will never leave us-nor will Jesus (Hebrews 13:5b). But, in order to be Christ-like, we must understand the principle in 2 Cor – inthians 4:10-12: We are always delivered unto the death of the Cross for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested through our mortal bodies. Death works in us that life may work in others.

We bear an image, and we manifest that image in everything we do. Whether we are practicing a song, or going on outreach, we are manifesting an image- whether good or bad-to the angels and to the world. But more than that, we are manifesting an image to one another in the Body of Christ.
