Question 6

If humanity has fallen and the image of God is marred, how do we know what God is doing in the lives of His people today?

God’s purpose is to conform us to the icon or “image” of His Son (Rom. 8:29). Through the act of justification (Rom. 5:1–2; 2 Cor. 5:21), and in the process of sanctification (Rom. 12:1–2), God is conforming us to the image and likeness of His Son (2 Cor. 3:18). God will complete His redemptive purpose for us at Christ’s Second Coming (1 Cor. 15:49–53).
