If you have a distorted image of God, you will have a distorted image of yourself. God put you in a place where He would always accept you and be well pleased with who you are. He put you in the safest place ever. He put you in Christ! His grace is the empowering presence of God that enables you to become what He sees when He looks at you. That’s why we must focus on being Christlike.
Oh, He is such a good, good Father!
