Personification


“…God…[is] Unconditional Love personified…God…feels no need or desire to punish anyone. He is not a God Whose love must be bought; nor is He so angry with us that He must kill Himself to assuage His displeasure…God…became Incarnate for the sole purpose of rescuing us from our self-chosen death, so that he might graft us into the life of the Holy Trinity.” (Matthew Gallatin)

And the truth is, when someone is pursuing, investigating, and attempting to understand the Son of God, he or she is pursuing truth personified, and that person will find Him.” (Jefferson Bethke)

"Wisdom is always personal: in fact, perfect wisdom is personified in Proverbs 8 as having been with God from all eternity and at the creation, as well as being the divine source of all human wisdom." (Arthur Holmes)

“That which is of the Father is the Only Begotten Son of God. He is incarnate and personified humility before all of His divine perfections.” (St. Justin Popovic)

“Modern thought, the zeitgeist, tends to depersonalize and conceptualize religion and faith. This is the polar opposite of Christianity and Christian thought. Our faith is deeply personal. God came to us as a person in Christ. Truth is a person. Wisdom is a person. God is personified in love. To even believe and accept these written words as true requires a personal union God through Christ and by the Holy Spirit.” (Sacramental Living Blog)
