You and I are the image of God! We have been given, His ‘looks’ and His characteristics. Why? To show Him to the World and help them understand that we’re not a chance, roll-of-the-dice, experiment. God created us to be like Him! He gave us the choice to do so.
Jesus portrays the characteristics of God. He came as a tiny, human, baby to save us and show us who God really is. God sent us His one and only Son to help us understand His great, incredible, merciful, grace-full, never-ending love for us.
In His image, we have ALL of His characteristics. We are creative, authoritative (over all of Creation – Genesis 1:28). We can reason, communicate, and love. And so many more… And one more thing, we look like Him!
Man and woman are equal. Although He gave us different genders we are equal in not only His sight but His thoughts. (1 Corinthians 11:11)
I am humbled that He chose to create me in His image. Aren’t you?
Blessings to you and yours!
