Christ the great was son of God and he says that children of God are those that act like God,right?
With utmost repsect of sentiments of lovers of Christ the great, from the statement of Christ, it is clear that we all are sons and daughters of God, jesus being not the one only. If it being so, why do we regard ourselves as sinners and not as sons and daughters of God. It is only because that Christ the great acted like God that is why he is a true son while we are still struggling to act like him and are far from his perfection. However, it is a possibility that someone among us may with the grace of God attain such perfection to be called as a true son of God.
Even for worldly parents with say, two sons -- one a saint and another a good for nothing rascal, the rascal too is indeed the son of the parents. But definitely, the saint "is more equal than" the rascal. If the parents themselves are great people, the world would only say the saint as the (only) worthy son of the parents. I think this is what you also mean.
And the other part too, I agree fully with you.
Could it be that all of us have that as our challenge?
From my own studies, it seems that each of us is built of several components. The Homo sapiens body is the most obvious part. Ego is less obvious, but because it is vulnerable, it is of this physical world. Our mind seems, at times, to be separate from the body's brain and thus may be another component.
But perhaps the most valuable component is that of the master within us -- the immortal spirit, child of God, Holy Ghost, true self, within.
According to Genesis 1:26, God created us in His image and likeness, but it needs emphasizing that He is not Homo sapiens!
God is love. God is limitless abundance and responsibility.
Ego is what separates us from God and from reclaiming our birthright. Ego is the blindfold over our eyes. So long as we have ego, we will require Homo sapiens bodies for our eyesight and our ability to think clearly.
When ego is vanquished, then the true self awakens. This is the rebirth of which Christ spoke. Then, we are again "sons of God." Then, we no longer require these human bodies for continuity of consciousness.
