'Conforming to Who We Are in Christ and What We Do Through Him'
Configuration is basically defined as: "The way the parts of something are arranged to work together." You could illustrate this in a computer. Hardware and software are arranged or configured to work together. In the world of chemistry, we observe an arrangement of atoms in a molecule that defines their relationship and function.
In the world of theology, let me say it this way: Through the work of Christ in redemption, you and I are reconfigured to our original configuration. Paul in Ephesians 1:3-11 declares that you and I were adopted by Father God in Christ before creation. We were configured in Christ; we were arranged as a son or a daughter of God. To say it another way, I refer now to Paul in I Corinthians 15:45-49 --- you and I were in the Last Adam before we were in the First Adam.
