18 – Elements of Personhood
God is a person and we are persons. We are like Him in that we possess the elements, which together make up what we call personality. But what are they? What exactly are the elements of personhood that constitute the image of God? Since there is no text in scripture that reads, “Thus says the Lord, The elements of personhood are . . .” then we must consider how God presents Himself in scripture and to look not only for those elements that distinguish Him as the sovereign, infinite God but also for those elements that define Him as a Person.
