It’s been said that Christians are children of God by adoption only.  And, the functionality of that adoption is faith.  I would argue that we as human beings created in His image have always been His rightful children.  However, it took the arrival and crucifixion of Christ to help us realize that we were His children and that He loved us that much.  Christ’s resurrection shows man what he really is in his heart.  Mankind’s potential was made clear in Jesus; however, that potential has always been there.  Mankind is a template for God to take form in.  He does this through the Holy Spirit which was sent by Christ after He ascended to live among us.  In this way, He is with us always…on the inside.
