“Let Us Take a #Selfie”

God Cannot Do This (Answer)

For the two of you who were willing to put yourselves out there trying to answer the riddle – thank you. ¬†And you were wrong. ūüôā

My answer when I first heard this: A bus driver always sees another bus driver, a shepherd sometimes sees another shepherd, but will never see another God. ¬†I was right in principle, but I couldn’t think of the one word. ¬†Specifically, that one word that begins with a “c”.

Colleague

A bus driver always sees another bus driver (a colleague), a shepherd sometimes sees another shepherd (a colleague), but outside of the Godhead, God will never see another god (a colleague).

Again, thanks for playing. ¬†Now, on to today’s post.


Selfie Defined

What is a selfie?  Dictionary.com defines the word as a photograph that one takes of oneself with a digital camera or a front-facing smartphone, tablet, or webcam, especially for posting on a social-networking or photo-sharing website.

God invented the selfie.  Did you know that?  Well, He did.

Then God said, ‚ÄúLet¬†Us make¬†man in Our image, according to Our likeness…God created man¬†in His own image, in the image of God He created him;¬†male and female He created them. ~ Genesis 1:26-27

In other words, God said, “Let Us take a selfie.”

Selfie Refined

Then God went and perfected the selfie.  Well, He did.

Christ, who is the image of God. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:4

He is the¬†image of the¬†invisible God… ~ Colossians 1:15

For¬†it was¬†the¬†Father‚Äôs¬†good pleasure for all¬†the¬†fullness to dwell in Him… ~ Colossians 1:19

In other words, Jesus is God’s true selfie.

Then Jesus wanted to take a selfie, too.  Well, He did.

For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined¬†to become¬†conformed to the¬†image¬†of His Son… ~ Romans 8:29

Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:49

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same¬†image¬†from glory to glory… ~ 2 Corinthians 3:18

In other words, the Church is Jesus’ selfie.

Selfie Redefined

So, the next time you take a selfie, remember who invented the selfie. ¬†Then remember that mug looking in the camera is a part of Jesus’ selfie. ūüėČ

    So what it boils down to is that when people look and listen to me they should be seeing and hearing Jesus Christ
