Do I study myself and yet still reject God? Do I accept he is real and yet reject my design, and his? How do I discover his structure: and dare I compare his to mine? Am I made in his image, truly? But what right do I have to see him in me – me!
It is interesting that, while we know we are made in God’s image, we don’t fully realize what that means. Each one of us consists of a mind, a heart, and a spirit, with each operating distinctly yet inseparably unified (ideally) together as one being. This is why we can consciously feel, address, and operate from, our mind, heart, and spirit, distinctly yet simultaneously as one you/me, the person.
God also consists of a mind, a heart, and a spirit, with each operating distinctly yet inseparably unified together as one being. It just so happens that Jesus also has a physical body, but one that is transformed and spiritually perfected, to which, and within which, we the spiritual Church body – the bride of Christ – will someday be reconciled in Holy eternal marriage, the eternal unification of God and man. We each are, in every way, personally made in, and then – by personally accepting Jesus Christ into our spiritual heart – spiritually reborn in the literal image of God; God the Father (the mind, or executive center), God the Son (the image, word, and heart of God), and God the Holy Spirit (the essence of, animation of, outpouring of, and unification of, God) – three distinct personages in one omnipresent, all-knowing, all-powerful, eternally divine triune being, apart from whom none other exists nor can, and within whom all who love him exist in his life-giving presence forever).
