It Takes a Lifetime | Image Series Introduction Part 2

Prophet Jeremiah, Russian icon from first quar...

As it was mentioned before, one cannot fully know his or herself if they do not know the God whose image he or she bears. Therefor I start with a disclaimer:

| The discovery of one’s self is a personal journey; I am only covering those aspects that apply to everyone.|

In other words, only you and God know the intents of your heart, and no man made system will ever come close to owning that knowledge.

One thing that you should consider when contemplating the intricacies of what it means to be human is that it takes a lifetime of discovery. Consider that and contemplate discovering God and you won’t be close as to how much we can be certain of; only things He saw fit to tell us, and yet He calls us to know Him!

“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD. (Jeremiah 9:23-24 NKJV)

If we are called to know so great a lover, judge and righteous One who made us in His image how can we escape learning about ourselves and what all it entails to be made in the image of God?
