Topic: How Jesus Describes You!

Highlights:

See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you. Isaiah 60:2

The world is warm right now and everywhere even seems dark. While people were running up and down then the Lord rises from His throne and set like a sun upon you.

Through Christ in you a Genesis mystery has been resolved.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the new YOU.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:1-3

You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. Let's see what you have become since when you have encountered Jesus Christ from Galatians 5:22

You are special and you enjoy showing heavenly love.

You have the glee and euphoria of salvation: because Christ lives in you there's hope for humanity.

You have freedom and peace in the midst of chaos because the greater one lives in you.

You have control over yourself. You know what is good for you and stop when it is right enough and because of this speciality, people always want you around them because you are tolerant and patient.

You are so friendly, generous and considerate

You are trustworthy a top quality for goodness that people see all the time.

You are constantly loyal in your service to others.

You are tender and mild-mannered.

And finally you are so so so self disciplined!

I agree with Jesus that the above description is the real YOU in this adulterated world. Keep working on it!

Prayer: Today I love myself more seeing how beautiful, gleeming and shiny I am. I am flattered Lord and am very grateful! Thank you Jesus.

Not sure what you mean by a Genesis mystery being resolved, could you explain this?
Do you see Genesis 1:1-3 as being a dual reference to actual creation and our Spiritual rebirth?

Yes when you look at the life of a converted sinner. Example is the life of Apostle Paul

Should not our example be to be Christlike on this side of the cross as we are being perfected just like Paul was being perfected daily in his walk with the Lord. The dual reference I mentioned is that of God taking that without form and making it into what His hand would fashion as His own desire of perfection seeing that it was good.

Was it cool or not after salvation comes into man and he looks good and appealing. It's almost same I think

Salvation means to be whole, mind, body and soul as we are Spiritually made new again within our inner man or another word our spirit as we are indwelled with the Holy Spirit. That is what God sees in us is the workings of the inner man that looks good and pleasing to the Father.
