1 Corinthians 15:49 NIV
“And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.”
We automatically think this is for heaven, but it doesn’t have a time frame. For sure, we will be transformed into the likeness of Christ as we enter the city of gold. All our sinful traits and behaviours will disappear forever- never remembered or discussed. But, we are redeemed right now, here, in time and space.
Our full and total redemption draws near, but the reality of it is in our lives on earth, is a present experience.
This is for now. We are to bear the image of the heavenly man, every day. We will with Him, learn from Him in His Word, everyday. That’s quite a challenge.! The earthly part of us fades away and the character of our Saviour, Jesus, shines through- Lord, help me today..
