In Christ we see the very image of God and the one by whom and for whom the creation has come into being. We see God's pleasure in having His entire fullness dwelling in His beloved Son in order to overcome our death and our hostility and restore the whole creation to Himself by Christ's physical death. Only the uniqueness of Christ and His taking on our physical existence in order to bear our sin and overcome our death can meet our need to be clean before God in a fully reconciled and renewed creation.
