Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
II Timothy 4:7 “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
I Corinthians 12:4-7 “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.”
John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
The Declaration of Independence powerfully and profoundly states the following: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Yes, we are CREATED as the previous post reminded us, but God’s plan is far better than even that. We are created EQUAL! We have been crafted and formed by our Glorious Maker in the image of God Himself.
None of this means that we are cookie-cutter, assembly-line-formed robotic outputs of creation. Such equity would mandate a mundane milieu for humanity. Instead, we have been formed in equality. Yet, all of us amazingly have our own courses, walk our own paths, embody a diversity of gifts, and yield complementary elements of impact.
All the while we can rest in the all-consuming truth that God loves us equally. The same God worketh in each of us. He has provided us a faith to follow in our own contexts and circumstances. He has also yielded His Son for salvation and His Spirit for steadfastness. Finally, he punctuates His stunning plan of equality with a supernatural dash of undeserved equity for those who trust in Him – an eternity in heaven through the shed blood of His Son.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TO EMBRACE THE POWERFUL EQUALITY OF CREATION AND LOVE THAT ARE PART OF GOD’S PLAN FOR HUMANITY AND A KEY ELEMENT OF OUR NATIONAL FOUNDATION. We must celebrate the wonders of equality!
ADMIN: My next PLUS post will be on July 22nd. Yet, please don’t take a break in praying for our nation and our leaders.
