Who We Are and What We Are?

Who we are and what we are in not known. We have missed the glory and the love and the power and the wisdom of God, for our lives. Our sin has produced an altered lifestyle.

In Luke 2:40 It is said of Jesus that the child grew strong in spirit and was full of wisdom. This is a picture of Jesus when He was twelve years old.

Because He knew no sin, Jesus had devoleped beyond His years. His heart was pure and He was being enfluanced by His face to face relationship with His Father.

Our true self is not known and has not developed because the devil has stunted our growth. The devil has robbed us from the only thing that will produce God likeness. God’s love, agape, is the missing ingredient that will enable us to live this life the way it was meant to be.

Only through God’s direct involvement in our lives can we develop into the person we were meant to be. Jesus lived the life every man should have lived. A life influenced by His Father’s love. He let God love Him until He became like Him. To be like God is the ultimate life.

Jesus was tempted on all points yet without sin. Agape, will enable the believer to control both fleshly desires and emotions. Agape enables the believer to be in control of his or her life at all times. This is how we will live a life without sin.

Paul wrote in Eph 4:13 - "Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" - KJV

This is the condition God’s love will produce in the heart of the believer. The word knowledge in the Greek means, to have full experiential knowledge. Through this relationship with the Son of God we will develop into a perfect man, we will come unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. This condition will be a fruit of the spirit not of ourselves.

What we become in agape will produce the real self.
