And you say, how can this be true? this is just another platitude thrown out by those completely devoid of reality.
But it IS true. BECAUSE if God has taken steps to REMOVE your imperfections, then all that is left is what is PERFECT. And what is left is perfect because you were originally DESIGNED that way, it’s just that you picked up a few problems along the way between there and here. [perhaps quite a few].
Then you might say, well if all my imperfections were removed, there would be nothing left of me! But that is not true. You were made with all the bits necessary to become, in this world, a properly operating human being, full of life and love. WHAT WENT WRONG?
Well it doesn’t even matter to worry about the particulars of what went wrong, it only matters that those things have been actioned by God and dealt with, because he is only concerned about recovering the real person that you are, from the unreal person you may have become. His love is so great that he has already taken the necessary steps to enable your recovery.
Recovery from where I am TO WHAT? you might say. And this is the interesting point. That your recovery which he has already put in place for you, amazingly places you back into that original creation design. And that design recovers you not only to some place whereby you are able to shine in THIS world, this fundamental creation, but places you in the original intention of a perfect and perfected creation which will last forever, and you with it.
The imperfections of this world have caused him the grief of the suffering of his son, of his very heart, just as you as part of his creation have caused him that same grief. But he sent Jesus into this world to remove its imperfections by revealing who he is and how the nature of love is such that it is prepared to suffer all that is wrong, so we might see all that is right, and return to Him, return to love and the image it embodies, and which image YOU ARE.
You have been forgiven EVERYTHING that has ever separated you from Him, from the love that he is, and the love that you also once were. You are, and always have been, his child of love. In Him because of Him and through Him, you have been perfected. All your imperfections have been removed “As far as the East is from the West” and He remembers them no more. His love is also YOUR love, and is freely available simply by believing in Him. Ask Him and He will send His son to you to help you live your new life as a son or daughter of the living God who is the father of this creation and of you also. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Your imperfections have been removed forever, just leaving you and Him, the one who is love. Do not choose to deny this your TRUE identity which is in His son of love, in order to retain the OLD one which is devoid of love, devoid of Him.
Those who are in Christ have become a part of the new creation, the old one will pass away, is passing away, has passed away.
