Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139) They are a word about God. The visible pointing to the invisible.
Eugene Peterson said, “God’s creative genius is endless. He never, fatiqued and unable to maintain the rigors of creativity, resorts to mass-producing copies. Each life is a fresh canvas on which He uses lines and colors, shades and lights, textures and proportions that He has never used before.” (Fincher, 100)
In other words, my body-including my soul, personality, everything about me – speaks of God (remember we aren’t separate but whole beings) In other words, there’s something about me, how God made ME, that emulates in ways others don’t as well.
For example, my mother emulates God’s peace. She is a peaceful woman. When you are around her you feel at peace. I, however, do not emulate peace but rather the warrior. I think my physicality even says it, just check out my hair!
What do you communicate about who God is in ways other’s don’t as well?
