In Christ we reclaim our humanity and the more we enter the truth about our redeemed and freed humanity we discover that there is something wild and untamed about it. When God created the earth, He created a wild and untamed place with ragged mountains, fierce volcanoes, deep oceans and steep waterfalls. As if that wasn’t enough He invented electricity, nuclear power and sex! Everything bearing witness about the Creator in whose image we are created. We thought we joined a “how to become a nice and well-behaved person club” when we came to Christ.
It takes a while to come to terms with what we unearth in our unique self, since our initial self-perception was based on the elementary principles of the world. Our religious inclined consciousness is in for some surprises when Jesus unwraps the package labeled: “I have much more to tell you.” Not all are able to handle that their soul is like the wind blowing wherever it wishes. Even in the infinite abyss of freedom in God (the unsearchable riches of the soul) they see sins. However, those who do not rein in the soul are like eagles soaring towards the sky. As rebels going against and challenging every convention they display that life is untamed and wild and that this life is the true image of God.
