Then God said, “Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (Genesis 1:26)
Yes, I’m sure you have heard this verse before and many times at that. But maybe it’s time to go back to the beginning. The place where there was no sin. A place where only God and man existed. A place where man was able to enjoy sweet fellowship with God and not have any interruptions. A place where there were no excuses, no cell phones, no business meetings, no traffic, no illness, no financial strain, no loss of jobs, no house payment due, no one to distract you from simply remembering that the Creator made you in His image.
WOW! That very thought amazes me! God did not have to make us in His image. His image is so beautiful and so indescribable. Why would He create me to mirror His image? There is only one answer to that. He created me to glorify Him. Everything He did, He did well!
