I am pondering Bonhoeffer and Genesis 1:27 today.
“Man only knows who he is in the light of God.”
—Christology, Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
In the Light of God’s Presence
It is here in the light of Christ,
where we glimpse our true image,
an image of God.
It is here in this fellowship,
where we see His glory in images glimpsed,
and fresh recognized.
In the praise of this daily worship,
we find ourselves fresh in His image,
awake in this light, this life.
We seek and find wisdom,
bashfully we admit our bold pursuit.
In His name we search for meaning.
In morning shave and wash,
we see a glimpse that we scarce believe,
seek to grasp Him and know Him and know me.
In the light, we seek to know Him.
In the Word, we seek to be with Him.
In the cross, we understand a little.
I would stay in this light.
