Uniqueness

You are unique because God is.




 


True?  Let's first look at some clues.

Astonishingly Improbable

Why?

Objection:  “But I only have average qualities.”

A Person is a Subject

Only You Can Do It

The Unique Heaven

Not only is this true on earth, but greatly expanded upon in Heaven.

C.S. Lewis expounds on this, and the unique name God will give His pleasure of you:

To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.” Revelations 2:17
     The giving of the white stone with the new name is the communication of what God thinks about the man to the man.  It is the divine judgment, the solemn holy doom of the righteous man, the "Come, thou blessed," spoken to the individual... The true name is one which expresses the character, the nature, the meaning of the person who bears it. It is the man's own symbol—his soul's picture, in a word—the sign which belongs to him and to no one else. Who can give a man this, his own name? God alone. For no one but God sees what the man is... It is only when the man has become his name that God gives him the stone with the name upon it, for then first can he understand what his name signifies. It is the blossom, the perfection, the completeness, that determines the name: and God foresees that from the first because He made it so: but the tree of the soul, before its blossom comes, cannot understand what blossom it  is to bear and could not know what the word meant, which, in representing its own unarrived completeness, named itself. Such a name cannot be given until the man is the name. God's name for a man must be the expression of His own idea of the man, that being whom He had in His thought when he began to make the child, and whom He kept in His thought through the long  process of creation that went to realize the idea. To tell the name is to seal the success—to say "In thee also I am well pleased."

 

My perfect one is unique.
