In The Image Of God

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

Genesis 1:27 BSB

The meaning of the word humanity comes from being made in the image of God. The word “image” does not reflect appearance—to physically look like God. However, we have the ability to express various emotions, creativity, authority over creation, the ability to create another human being by bringing together a husband and wife, to have compassion, love, construct objects, etc.

God created humanity to live forever, which is the spirit of men, but not the physical body we inhabit today because it has been infected with original sin. The person will live forever, either in heaven or in hell. It all depends on their choice, if they have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior or if they have rejected Him (John 3:16-18, Luke 16:19-31).

Our purpose was and continues to be to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ who created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1).

everyone called by My name and created for My glory, whom I have indeed formed and made.

Isaiah 43:7 BSB

You are precious in God’s eyes, and He created you for a purpose.

I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this very well.

Psalm 139:141 BSB

The Father wants you to believe in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ so that you won’t go to hell but be with Him in heaven forever.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and welcome you into My presence, so that you also may be where I am.

John 14:3 BSB

  1. Thank you brother for this important distinction that you illustrate well here, that being in His image is more than mere flesh. A worthy point to ponder upon today indeed. God bless you today.
