I am in the Likeness of God

Today, I would like to share another important trait we need to know about ourselves. In Genesis 1:26.27,

Then God said, “LIMG_3959et Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”

 So God created man in His own image;
He created him in the image of God;
He created them male and female.” (HCSB)

The Book of Genesis says that God created us in His Image and in His Likeness. We were made to be rulers and stewards of the whole earth. God made me more than just an animal:-

  • I am created in God’s image
  • I am created to relate to GOD and Others in LOVE

Remember, You and I are made in the Likeness and Image of God. We are created as MALE and FEMALE. We are not an accident. We are not products or results of a Big Bang. We are not a result of the process called evolution. We are made in God’s Image and in His Likeness. Let us with great confidence say that, “I am in the Likeness and Image of GOD“. God bless you.

I am a CREATURE

Lately, some of my Bible readings inspired me to write on the theme “Who i am in Christ“. Let’s trace the story from the beginning. It is our crowning day as God’s most favourite intelligent beings. God created all things, visible and invisible. Because he is the creator, He is also the rightful owner of all things. As it is written in Colossian 1:16,“For by Him all things were created: things in heBEE3SALAaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him” NIV

In addition to being the rightful owner, God also rules over all of the creation; his authority is final.

According to Genesis 2:7, I am a creature that God formed(יָצַר – yatsar) from the dust of the ground, He breathed into my nostrils the breath of life, and I became a living being.

God made me:-

  •  Like a potter, God crafted me.
  • God made me with skill and intention
  • I am complex and complicated
  • I have God’s life-breath in me.

I am a creature. I am a living being formed in the likeness of God.
