Why are we Unique? Uniqueness
Jesus took every single sin we ever committed so we can be liberated from the bondage of our sinful nature. He reconciled us to God by believing that He is the Son sent by God and whoever believes will be saved and through the Son we become sons of the most high, the Father Almighty, thus, made us eligible to be partaker of the Divine Nature of Him, our Almighty Father.
Mercy and Grace are the two powerful attributes of God. He gives us an opportunity to know our identity and without the goodness of the Father, we should have been gone before we even know who we are and what we are doing here. God works all things in this world according to His purpose and the fulfillment of His will. The mystery of being here today and gone tomorrow will surely be kept a mystery and may never be revealed or else it will not be a Sacred Secret anymore.
With the knowledge and understanding of God we clearly establish our identity that we belong to Him and He is our all in all. Our identity will serve as the window of opportunity for those who do not know Him and the key to understand God is to understand where we are coming from. Faith is our greatest possession and hope supports it. Human exists because of God’s purpose and will, but we always fail because of our human nature. We are created in God’s image and likeness therefore God is our identity and any misrepresentation, wickedness and intentions do what God hates will surely reflect to His image. We are not created to fail but to be a victor.
God created humans with unique characteristics and being unique makes us special. During the time of innocence, Adam and Eve were unique because they were the first created beings that met and fellowshipped with God face to face. God called Abraham His friend; Abraham became unique by being the father of many nations. David’s sins did not stop God of His plan that the Son will come from his lineage. Moses received instructions from God as well as the Ten Commandments to be followed by his people, whom at that time were worshipping idols. When grace poured upon the earth during the baptism of Jesus Christ, God’s voice came from the heavens and uttered “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Through the Son we learned that we are children of God. Will it not be unique through the work of Jesus we are reconciled to the Father and later our identity becomes much stronger to be considered one of the many sons of the Father.
Jesus walked on this earth with a mission that through Him the world may be saved. Likewise, God said “whoever believes in Him will not perish but have an everlasting life” and that is a promise that made us unique in the eyes of God and of the Son. However God designed us also to have contentment in our hearts and our souls as well as certainties of things to come. Our identity in Christ somehow makes us special because we are loved by Him, redeemed and reformed by the Father and our spirit has been renewed by the Holy Spirit. We are unique because the Holy Spirit is within us that gave the right to be part of the family of God.
The assurance of adoption to son ship is through Jesus Christ in accordance with His pleasure and will. As sons of the most high, we should love one another in order to bring praise to God. With power and authority Christ brought us to wholeness and fullness with this unity, that with the Lord’s spirit we are no longer slave to sin.
Called, chosen or elect, we are one Christian family, male and female, each one of us is part of the body of Christ. God created mankind in His own image with unique characteristic, behavior and attitude. We are God’s possession that was put under His wings. No race, no gender, no age limit, we are all one body saved from the power of sin. We are removed from slavery of sin; from sin to being sinless to become the temple of the Holy Spirit. We don’t even deserve the gift from God, but God’s steadfastness and kindness and His unconditional love make it happen and in return we should praise and honor God through our body as a living sacrifice.
We are dead to sin and have been raised with Christ to be in perfect body as our heart is being prepared for an everlasting joy with the LORD. Our heart must be willing and willfully ready on things above in order to make it through the process of salvation. The saving grace is in progress as God listens to the testimony of our soul, but then again, He looks into our heart if we are ready to leave the promises of luxurious living offered by the actors on the other side. We should know by now who we are and what we are. Why we are here today and gone tomorrow? We are here on a temporary visit and our home is where God is. We are in the process of the sanctification of our soul.
All have sinned and short for the glory of God. How can we make it through this process? Our body which is flesh will surely turn to dust and the soul that sinned dies; and this dust will join the dirt of the earth and will wait until the body is available to be born again. This could be the process of resurrection, reincarnation and who knows what the third would be if there is one. We should listen to the teachings of Jesus especially when He said without hesitation that we can all be gods and without understanding by those itchy ears caused Jesus to die accusing Him of claiming to be God. I interpret what Jesus said that we can all be good like God. He said about the goodness of God. We are created in His image and likeness therefore we must be good.
