God's Image

Description

We are made in His Image. We are not just physical beings. We have a capacity for a life beyond, for communication with God, and God with us.

Today’s Reading: Genesis 1-2

Key Verse: Genesis 1:27

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

“God created.” “Elohim bara” (Hebrew). This Name for God is always plural, yet in the Hebrew language it takes a singular verb (Gen. 1:1). Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are at work to make something out of nothing. In the rest of the story the verb is “Asah,” which is what a carpenter does when he works with material already in existence. Chapter 2 is an expansion of what God did in chapter 1. We are made in His Image. We are not just physical beings. We have a capacity for a life beyond, for communication with God, and God with us. Like God, we are intended to live forever. Because we are made in His image, we can know Him. We have the freedom to choose. We can ignore Him or reject Him or we can learn of Him, receiving Him as our God, believing in Him and not just about Him.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord God, I’ve decided to believe in You. Thank you for enabling me to read your words. Your Thoughts are expressed in Words. Help me to maintain the commitment of reading Your Word daily, getting to know what You think of me and of everything. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

I marvel at God’s creation. On our property, according to someone who knows, there is a 300 year old cherry tree. Amazing! The other day, a large red fox decided to have a sleep on our driveway. Norma-Jean thought it was dead, but it jumped up and ran off, it’s long fluffy tail floating in the breeze. God must love variety. In meditating on creation, my heart and mind are lifted up to contemplate the Creator God, and Jesus Himself. John writes that, “Without Him nothing was made that was made.” The mystery of it all astounds me.

We’ve read the first book of the New Testament and we’re now beginning the first book of the Old Testament. Remember, at any time you or someone you know can begin this journey and in two years, with bite-sized readings, God’s thoughts expressed in Words will be yours, and the Spirit of God will bring to remembrance what you need to know when you need to know it.
