So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created Him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27 NKJV
You did not evolve from primates. You were not deposited here by aliens from a more advanced planet than ours. Your ancestors did not crawl out of the primordial ooze.
God created you in His image and likeness. The Lord created you to be loved by Him. He created you to love Him!
In what way did God create us in His image and likeness?
My earthly father and I are very different. If you saw us together you would know we are father and son. I resemble him. I act like him. I have his DNA. I carry his name. I picked up some of his habits. I carry on some of the things that were important to him.
We will never be exactly like God. He is unique. He has no beginning and no end. He has no equal. The Lord did not create us to be His equals. He created us to be His children. He created us with the capacity to love Him and each other.
The capacity to receive and return God’s love is a gift we can overlook and take for granted. The capacity to receive and return love from each other also a gift we can take for granted.
We were created to be extensions of God’s authority. He created us to represent Him. It was His intention from the beginning for us to have dominion over the earth. Not as sovereign rulers but as caretakers of God’s marvelous creation.
Jesus wants us to pick up some of His habits. He wants us to carry on with the work that is important to Him!
God created the heavens and the Earth. He created the universe and the creatures who live within it. God created us to be special and unique. The Lord created us to be set apart for His glory and honor.
You are God’s greatest creation!
Only mankind was created in God’s image and likeness. No one exactly like you has ever lived before. No one exactly like you will ever exist again. God created you for a purpose. He has given you everything you need to represent Him today.
The day God created you He was very pleased. Jesus was pleased because He loved you even before you were born. Jesus loves you today and always will!
Share the love of God with people who need to know how much Jesus loves them!
