The next couple of blogs is going to be about the body of God, the Church, and Us. When you talk about the body of God a lot of things comes to mind like, what does God's body look like if we are in his image, or that we are the body of God.
Well if we are the body of God, then we would go ahead and look at Jesus because he is God in the flesh. If Jesus is God then if we are the body of God, we need to truly be like Jesus. If we follow in the body of God, is should be called the Body of Christ, only to make more sense. Every person is made in the image of God so Jesus was also in the image of God. So knowing that does God look like Jesus? Well when you read in the first chapter of Genies, you read that God said, "Let the human beings be in our image." So right there God is talking about his angels or maybe what I was talking before, Jesus being the image.
Other translations would say, "He made them in the likeness of God." Which this makes more sense to me because, when he said likeness it saids to me, like his love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control. So when he said likeness he ment, like the way he acts.
I do not think that God has a body because God does not have a sex, he is neither man or women. If you have read the book "The Shack", it is probably the worst representation of who God is. In the book it said that God is a fat black women that makes cookies. That is so wrong on a lot of levels because if God had a sex it would be a man because God in flesh was a man. Jesus prays to God as Father. "Matthew 11:25"At that time Jesus prayed this prayer: "O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike." I pick the first verse that came up with Jesus praying. It saids "O, Father" not mother. God gets the name Father because a father has a authority and it also saids in the old testament that God is the Father to the fatherless.
Next blog I will talk a little bit more about God being Father. If you have any questions please comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
