We are made the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus our Lord.
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him,” 2 Corinthians 5:21.
As we apply the word of God to our lives the seed of God which is the living word ~ Jesus is growing within us, as this seed reaches a maturity, we become the expressed image of our Father God, who is love.
His love is then perfected within us and we shine forth the image of God to this world. He is the glorious light within.
Therefore let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify the Father within you.
“And now, little children, abide in him; that, WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming,” 1 John 2:28.
“When he shall come to be glorified IN his saints, and to be admired IN all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day,” 2 Thessalonians 1:10.
“And we know that the Son of God IS come , and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are IN him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ, this is the true God and eternal life,” 1 John 5:20.
“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ IS come IN the flesh, is of God: and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ IS come IN the flesh, is not of God; and this is the spirit of anti-christ, whereof ye have heard that it should come, and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God little children and ye have overcame them because greater is HE that is WITHIN you than he that is within the world,” John 4:2-4.
“My little children, whom I travail in birth again, until Christ be formed IN you,” Galatians 4:19
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ IN you the hope of glory,” Colossians 1:27.
When the seed of Christ Jesus within us reaches a maturity, we will reflect the very image of the Father God, who is love, because Christ Jesus was the very image of his father and he showed to us the father plainly.
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of the living God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16.
