To be FULLY Human

Loved this pic posted by Scott Hodge.

When we talk about our humanity as Christians we tend to think of it as something to be destroyed. I think I prefer to see it as something to be redeemed.

Since the fall of Adam humanity as it was, like the whole of creation, has almost been unrecognisable.

19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. - Romans 8 v 19 - 23

But then came Jesus, fully God yet fully man. A human the like the world had not seen since creation. The second Adam.

Here to restore our humanity as he intended it.
