How will God´s image return to us?

Share |

God’s image will return to us, when through the power of the Holy Spirit by means of Baptism and the Gospel, we believe in Jesus. Through this faith we again know God in the right way and have a sincere desire to lead a righteous and holy life. But only in heaven, when faith changes to seeing and we no longer have sin, will God’s image be fully restored in us.

Col. 3:10: Ye have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him.

Eph. 4:24: Put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

1 Joh. 3:2: Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but ye know that when He shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see Him as He is.

Ps. 17:15: As for me, I will be hold thy face in righteousness. I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness.
