After asking to “see from His perspective” ~
God never had a human perspective or vantage point until the Word became flesh and lived among us. But, He immediately was able to see His creation from our point of view in a completely new way to him. He also saw the depravity of every person’s heart from a new view and the beauty of the joy set before him was that He was going to make it a holy, righteous and beautiful place and live WITHIN that inner being!
Part of His joy was that we would be joined to him in spirit (now) and He would begin forming Himself in us by his Light! He delighted in the future fact that He would relationally know us inwardly and get to work with us in cleansing us from all unrighteousness until we are like him in every way that we are!
He saw us as little Christ’s that would carry His life and light like a different shaded light bulb or stained glass window. The Light is His but, the life is ours…our uniqueness combined with His righteousness, holiness an truth is a completely ne creature, unlike any the world has ever seen before!
He has great joy that we walk in his truth and light as He is in and IS the Light because it’s the most intimate relationship He has ever known apart from Himself.
Before God sent Holy Spirit; He could not know man from the inside out except through the eyes of Jesus but, now God can know every human from the inside out through His Spirit and it’s the reason He created us! He created us to relationally know Him and be known by Him first and foremost. It’s the high calling of God to have a unique relationship with Him and share who He is with the entire world!
This brings Him great joy and it bears eternal fruits of righteousness!
