“The Image Of God”

thCA0HMW3J

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast mae him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet. (Psalm 8:3-6).

 

We see the love of God in us all for we were created in the image of God! “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”.(Genesis 1:26,27).

 

We were created  to be the vine dressers of the earth as well as in God’s eyes his building (temple) who worships him. “So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building”.(1 Corinthians 3:7-9).

 

It is true God created this earth and is God almighty in heaven, yet through many temptations shall man be tried by the god of this world whom is satan who tries daily to steer God’s children from him to serve evil instead of good and are not believers. It is by true repentance and the light of God’s word that shines in ones life that makes God’s own image (Christ) appear to us. “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus; sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”.(2 Corinthians 4:3-6).
