Let Him Show You Off

"...God wants to show you off. He loves you and delights in you simply because you exist. There is something unique you have to do for Him in establishing His futuristic Kingdom off peace in the world. We have the prototype, Jesus, who has shown us the way. It's time for each one of us to embrace the identity we were given before the world was made. He wants to make our wounds a resource for the healing of others. He wants to make His resurrection power known through our real day-to-day lives. Do you have any idea what's at stake in your understanding who you really are?"

- Jonathan Martin in Prototype: What Happens When You Discover That You Are More Like Jesus Than You Think, page 205
