Colossians 1:15 Thought/Prayer:  The Image of God.  Topics:  2 at end.

[Speaking of Christ] ” . . . who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; . . .”  (AKJV)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

We are told here that Christ is the image of the invisible God.  It is a name that describes Jesus.  Jesus, the Image of God.  In John 14:9 we are told, that if we have seen Christ, we have seen the Father.  “Jesus said to him, ‘Have I been so long time with you, and yet have you not known me, Philip? he that has seen me has seen the Father; and how say you then, Show us the Father?’” (AKJV)

We also are told in Genesis 1:27 that we human beings are created in God’s image.  “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”  (AKJV)

Isn’t this awesome?  To think of it:  Christ is the image of God, and so we can relate to God through Christ.  And we are made in the image of God.  No, of course, we can’t see God to compare our “images,” our appearances, with His.  But we do know that we have emotions; think; plan; and more, just like He does.

Think of the baby in the womb.  Every one of them is made in the image of God.  The beginnings of a life in a womb already has imbedded in it the image of the One Who did the creating.

So when we consider an unneeded death chosen to occur in the womb, are we not committing a crime against God Himself who planned for the child to be born and grow and feel, think, plan and more?

Lord, forgive us for going against the very essence of You when we say it’s OK for babies to be killed in their mothers’ wombs – even as a nation.  Please, Lord, be convicting many to stand against this travesty toward You.  Help us to be faithful.

Topics:  Pray for conviction worldwide about the sin of abortion and how it dishonors God.
Many many more churches to be on board against abortion
