WEEKS AGO, I wrote down a quote from Brother Chris which keeps rolling around in my head.
"WE ARE ALL BORN LOOKING FOR SOMEONE,
WHO IS LOOKING FOR US."
As I have pondered this deep and profound thought, I have come to one conclusion. We are created in the image of God.
"God created man in His own image."
We are not created in the physical image of God, but rather, we are created in the moral, spiritual, and intellectual image of God. I might add, I personally believe we are created in the emotional image of God. Our emotions are a reflection of those we see throughout The Word. While seeking answers about Chris's quote, I came across this ~
"From understanding the image of God in the human being, we learn four things about God Himself"
that He is seeking to have relationship with the human being
that He has a kingdom that which humankind is invited to live and work
that there is a unified plurality in the Godhead
that He has a intimate love for humankind."
We come into this world looking for love, desiring to be loved and to love. The pursuit and practice of the language of love is universal.
To quote an old song, perhaps we are~
Until we get a glimpse of the love the very Author of Love created, we may never be satisfied with the love we find on this terrestrial ball. Unless we know the breadth and width of the infinite love of The Father, will we ever be able to understand and experience true love? There is only one perfect love and His Word is the blueprint.
"A new commandment I give to you,
that you love one another:
just as I have loved you,
you also are to love one another."
