Imagine that the number 12 represents you as a fully mature son of God, as in Ephesians 4:13.
Equations of 12
In our analogy the number 12 represents you, fully formed into the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
1 John 3:2-3 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
2+10=12 2 x 6=12
3+3+3+3=12 100-88=12 950.4/79.2=12
There are an infinite number of ways to get to 12, but they all equal 12.
What if the choices we make every day are creating the equation of our lives?
What if God is NOT guiding us down a cattle chute toward our 12?
Maybe, as our poor choices send our equation off the mark, God brings situations that offer opportunities to correct our equation.
My equation interacts with your equation and many other equations. We add to and subtract from one another’s equations.
All the time there is a Guiding Hand, not manipulating, but offering a path that leads to 12.
