MAN FROM HEAVEN

And just as we have borne

the likeness of the earthly man,

so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:49

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, have you looked in the mirror lately? What do you see? Do you know what I see in My mirror? I see a precious child created in My image, bearing My likeness. Like a proud father, I love to boast, "My child looks like Me!" As you grow more and more in love with Me, I'm making you more like Me, the man from heaven—your heavenly Father.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, is it possible one day that I'll really look like You? To have my Father's eyes and my Father's love—this is my desire. You are the man from heaven, the One I admire, the One I'm looking forward to seeing in person.

SIMPLE TRUTH

No matter what people tell you about yourself, God knows—and loves—the real you.
