Paul’s second letter to the church in Thessalonica contains a fascinating insight that deserves careful, thoughtful examination. 2 Thessalonians ch.2 v.13-14 says that God chose us from the beginning of Creation and called us into a partnership with Himself through the good news about Jesus Christ.
The nature of the partnership is both outward and inward – through faith and the work of the Holy Spirit. We are not left on our own. Neither are we automata. It is our destiny – which means we truly become ourselves and feel united with that vision as we become more and more like Christ.
Each of us, in our own unique way reflect His presence, as if we ware a myriad of diamonds.
