In Romans 8:29, the Apostle Paul tells us about God’s great plan for us: “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”
I have to admit that the word “conformed” used to make me cringe. I used to think that this verse meant that humans were created to be carbon copies of Christ, without a unique identity or personality. But in Genesis man was formed in the image and likeness of our Messiah, and that image and likeness came in the form of male and female. The Divine Image and Likeness is something much deeper, and it is not nullified by our gender, personality, and purpose. In fact, the Divine Image and Likeness is all about how the great I AM has expressed Himself in infinite combinations.
Stolen Identity is an e-book series dedicated to highlighting Christ’s work in our lives of restoring us back to that divine image and likeness. It is through the power of His love that we are transformed, and it is by His grace that we are empowered to follow in His footsteps. Through stories and snapshots from my personal walk with the Lord, I hope that you will be encouraged to witness and learn about the many ways that God speaks. Above all, my desire is that all of God’s people will learn how to recognize the Shepherd’s voice, and as a result, recognize who they are. For you are meant to be a Child of the Most High God, living life to the full, and walking upright and in all His ways.
