That the Emperor Caligula had a statue of himself made in gold, and every day it was changed into a replica of the clothes that he was wearing that day!
I know that it says in the Scriptures that we have become partakers of the divine nature, but I think that is taking it a bit too far.
What I need to get inside my too often far thick skull, and even more impenetrable heart, is that I am a son of God.
This means that it is not only my words, not only my actions, not simply my position or status, or even my mistakes and mess-ups that Daddy is identified with.
Daddy – that is, the Creator of everything – is in my DNA! He is the One who has made me someone. He is the original, and I (get this) am also an original in His image.
Daddy’s heart aches over EVERY single one of his children. There is a unique space in his heart for each of them. Daddy, I want to fill that space today, I want to make you proud today.
