Genesis 1:27 Thought/Prayer: PT 2

Made By Him—and In His Image!  Topics:  2 at end

So God created human beings in his own image.  In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

We don’t know all of the meaning of this, that we human beings were created in God’s own image.  But we do know that we are very impressive creations because we are created in his image, whatever that means. 

Perhaps in some way we are like him physically, although no one has ever been able to look upon the form of God—(John 1:18—“No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.”).  We know that God has emotions such as we have—(Ezekiel 7:8 – “Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: . . . ”) and purposefulness—(Isaiah 55:11 – “So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”)

But however we are made in His image, each child, each middle-aged lady, each elderly man, are created by him – and God thought enough of us to make us like Him.  How awesome.  This is what makes us impressive, no matter our shape, intellect, or appearance.  It’s because we are made by Him.

Pray today that more and more people will realize this and accept it.

Topics:  Pray for grandparents everywhere, especially for those who are bringing up their children’s children, and especially for those who are bringing up their children’s children because their own children did not abort the unexpected grandchildren.

Pray for grandfathers especially, if they are involved in grandchild-upbringing, that they may be positive influences of love and caring as given by God.  Pray God will help them to bring up these little ones well, these little ones made in the image of our eternally-loving God.
