The divine nature...

Something from our homework in last week's Bible study has been rolling around in my head all week and I thought I'd share it. (We're just over halfway through with "Esther - It's Tough Being a Woman by Beth Moore)

"Discontent with selfishness and weary of ego, we finally become willing to lose ourselves in something greater. In doing so, we find Christ as we've never known Him and, there, pooled in the reflection of His eyes, startle to discover that a part of ourselves resembles Him. That, Beloved One, is what happens when human flesh and blood - with all its frailty - participates in the divine nature."
