The Bible is full of quotes that tell us things like, “The Kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:20), we are “Heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus” (Romans 8:17), “You are gods” (John 10:34), and even Jesus telling us that “we shall do the works which He does” in John 14:12. We could go on and on with similar ideas that support us with the fact that we are each an expression of God, fulfilling our individual role in this material world.
