Created for glory

We have this ongoing tension of wanting to be seen yet not seen at the same time. We want to both hide and be noticed.

We want to be seen, noticed and praised for our accomplishments so we might feel significant, important and valuable etc. Yet we don't want to be seen because we know if people saw us truly, with all of our flaws, they would reject us.

The solution?

Christ sees us as we really are and still wants us even when others reject us. As adopted children in Christ we are now his restored and beloved (valued) castaways, fully embraced in Christ and by Christ.

The underlying dynamic for both of these is the need to be valued. We were created for glory because we were created to know the all glorious one.

Joh 5:44  How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?
