We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine


Image is Everything

We were created in the image of God–but do we reflect his image in grace and excellence?

Scripture tells us that Lucifer was once the reflection of the glory of God. In fact, his name literally means “light-bearer”; in Ezekial 28 we read that Lucifer was the sight and sound of God’s glory–he was the Cherub that covered the throne of God with the brilliance that was created in him. When he fell, he was cast down to the earth, and since that time has been distorting the image of God–through sight and sound.

Many have fallen prey to the wiles of the devil, addicted to both mediocrity and the temporary unfulfilling pleasures of our day. Like the proverbial frog we are being amused to death (amuse – def’ – not thinking).

But there is hope.

In the beginning of time, God vested the treasure of His image to humanity, charging Adam and Eve to bear His image by taking dominion, being fruitful, multiplying, and filling the earth. God tasked mankind with the vocation of re-creation.

It is our calling to bear His image with honor and excellence as we reflect His glory in our work and relationships. In 2nd Peter 1 we read that His divine power has granted us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence.

If you have ever longed to reach the highest level of excellence in your God-giftedness, there is an unprecedented opportunity that awaits you. This summer you will have an  opportunity to work and study side by side with godly mentors who have excelled in their God-given skills, reaching the highest level of mastery.
