To present ourselves as a compilation of church distinctives, fragments of the law and the expression of partisan doctrines is an affront to God and insult to ourselves.
You were made in the image of God and have been redeemed into that image as a son - woven into the trinity by position and by nature. You have an identity as a daughter or son that transcends any denominational affiliation because with Christ as your life you are a son in spirit and in truth and not in theory and religiosity as you are when you have locked yourself into a religious identity that seems more important to you than who you are in Jesus.
You can have but one husband and one master who is Christ in order to be a son of God. Meddle with this and you revert to the designation of slave and worker.
The pure in heart see God. Those of divided loyalty see very little at all.
Because of the cross and the incarnation you are the expression of God as Bill and Dianne. This is life in the Spirit. It’s the basis of the gifts, the substance of the Kingdom and the agency of the new creation.
“We are the expression of God. Mankind is the God kind. We are the carriers of the image and likeness of God. (When God designed you He had no other reference but Himself, He looked at Himself to design you).” (1)
