Here is a very amazing thought for us to chew on! “God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, after our likeness!” Genesis 1:26 Stop for just a moment and realize that this is talking about you and me! We are made in the image and likeness of God. This should challenge us to look at ourselves and others differently. And when I say differently – I mean in a good and positive way!
God Said It! “God said!” For people to be made in His image was His idea! God desires for us to take on His nature and character as seen in His Son Jesus. We should seek to be transformed into His image and likeness, because it is in this place that we will find fulfillment by living in the purpose of our creation.
Only The Best! “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness.” God created us from nothing into something. And not just any something – the something was in His image and likeness. We may not always live up to our created potential, but the potential is always there, just waiting for us to tap into and experience the miraculous!
I remember as a young boy growing up in church that one of our sunday school rooms had a poster of a little boy with the following words above his head: “I am special because God made me and God don’t make no junk!” The grammar may not have been great, but the message was and is powerful. You are special! God made you and if He took the time to make you in His image, then you know He has to have an amazing plan for your life!
Take some time today to appreciate who God created you to be. Also take a little time to appreciate who God created others to be. You’ll be glad you did!
