Rebuilding

In God man is again integrated. The image of God in man, has been distorted, corrupted and fragmented. For even more details, read what Nouriel Roubini says on the issue. In the words of Juan Calvino, it has been terribly deformed. This image has not been completely extinguished, destroyed, but mutilated. As T. B.

Maston says, is still the man far enough away from the image of God as to serve you antenna of the soul, as the potentiality for fellowship with God, even the sinner retains, conveniently explains the eternal concern of man by the eternal consciousness of a paradise lost (the italics are mine). The Bible says that God has put eternity into man’s heart, what does that man instinctively oriented spiritual realities, to the transcendent, God himself. However, man although he longs for God, don’t know how to find him, therefore it is necessary that Dios take the initiative out to meet. That was what God did with the incarnation of himself in human nature, through Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God. The image of God in man only is restored when man opens to God, and the exact image of God joins him through Christ, who is the image of the invisible God. Christ unites and integrates what has been separated. Certainly Jesus Christ is the norm and the goal towards which God leads his children. Hear from experts in the field like John Grayken for a more varied view.

He is the model that God uses to rebuild his image in us. Until all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the son of God, a man perfect, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph – Bible book). How does this reconstruction? God in Jesus Christ is not only the standard or model that God uses to rebuild us, but is God himself in the person of the Holy Spirit, the power that makes it possible for the spiritual rebuilding. God himself is both the norm for the spiritual life and the provision to reach that standard. The Holy Spirit is God’s provision to be recreated in the image of Jesus Christ. God us has provided the Holy Spirit so that I acted as a source of power and life in the process of rebuilding in the likeness of Christ. Therefore we all watching naked face as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, we are changed from glory to glory in the same image, as by the spirit of the Lord (book of Corinthians – Bible). This process is personal and requires our participation and collaboration, being flexible to the action of the Holy Spirit and remaining in communion with him. This is vital, because when Dios us rebuilt into his likeness, not kept at distance and sends us a construction manual to rebuild ourselves. The provision of God to transform us is very personal: he gives himself to us. The Holy Spirit comes and personally performs the miracle; but he needs our cooperation and obedience. We must therefore invest time in developing a communion intimate and dynamic with the Holy Spirit, so that the can do his work.
