IN HIS IMAGE
Genesis 1:26-27, God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…”
Consider this truth: You and I have been made (created) in the image of God. How can we deny this fact? From the very beginning, God’s plan has been to make you and I like Him. This is a great privilege, and it gives us dignity. It gives us worth and value, because without Christ we are nothing and can do nothing.
Adam and Eve were uniquely created in the image of God, unlike the animals and the rest of the physical creation. That is why we are set apart and above all other creation. Being created in God’s image is an awesome gift, as well as a sacred responsibility. Our purpose for God creating us was for fellowship with Him. The Bible also tells us that God would come and walk with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day. WOW! Can you imagine that? What an incredible joy and privilege that must have been to walk and talk with God about the things we did throughout the day. When you realize how much God loves you and what He has done for you, you will begin to live in true freedom. You will begin to experience God like you have never experienced Him before.
Today no matter how your day has started, remind yourself that you are perfect in Christ Jesus! You are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God, and He has perfected you with a purpose. You have been recreated to be just like Jesus. So, dust yourself off, straighten your crown, and walk like the woman of God you were created to be!
