God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. [Ps.104:30; Heb. 1:2;11:3.]*Colossians 1:16 So
God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness ofs of God He created him; male and female He created them. [Col.3:9,10; James 3:8,9.]
Genesis 1:26-27 AMP
|Created in His Image|
God created us, living beings in His image. Not exactly like Him, since God has no physical body but to reflect all of His attributes and Glory.
Our entire being reflects the image of God...we are reflections of God's glory!
God gifted us with our reason, creativity, speech and self-determination. Another amazing gift God has given us is free will. He gave us authority and the freedom to subdue the rest of what He created.
God is too loving to force submission from anyone. He wants us to freely choose to love and serve Him.
When we finally understand the fact that we are God-like, we would live a life of joy and confidence. knowing that our self-worth does not come from possessions, achievements, physical attractiveness, or the opinions or approval from other people.
Knowing our worth in God will help us to love God, to know Him personally and make an impact in those around us.
Today I pray for a new revelation of God's love for you, and at the same time that fresh and willful commitment to love and serve God comes straight from your heart. Amen
