Created in the Image of God – Continuously Outpouring

We were created continuously outpouring. Note that I did not say we were createdto becontinuous outpourers. Nor can I dare imply that we were createdto worship. This would suggest that God is an incomplete person whose need for something outside himself (worship) completes his sense of himself. It might not even be safe to say that we were createdforworship, because the inference can be drawn that worship is a capacity that can be separated out and eventually relegated to one of several categories of being. I believe it is strategically important, therefore, to say that we were created continuously outpouring—we were created in that condition, at that instant,imago Dei. We did not graduate into being in the image of God; we were, by divine fiat, already in the image of God at the instant the Spirit breathed into our dust. Hence we were created continuously outpouring. – From “Unceasing Worship” – Harold Best
