Re:Verse passage – John 14:6 (day six)

“In Christ we see the truest human to ever live.” -Megan Langan

If this is true, and it is, then not only is Jesus the perfect portrait of Imago Dei (Image of God), but he is also a reminder of what he is redeeming. We are not redeemed only to become part of a “greater” reality as disembodied spirits; that is a very pagan idea. Jesus became fully human to redeem our humanity in its entirety, body and soul.  Anything less would be less than human.

Knowing that God is redeeming all of your humanity (all that it means to be human), how does it make you feel? How does it shape thankfulness and hopefulness?

One thought on “Redemption”

  1. Your reference to thankfulness and hopefulness reminds me of one of my favorite NT passages: “looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of . . . our great God and Savior Christ Jesus,” Titus 2:13 (New Amer. Standard).
    The Parousia is our primary source of hopefulness.
