Made In The Image Of Greatness

Isn’t it wonderful how unique the world is. No two people are exactly the same. The latest calculations tell us that there are 7.4 billion people in the world and growing. Not a single person looks, acts, or has your same exact purpose in life. Yet another reason to brag on our creator. The Bible tells us that we are made in the image of God.

Now what exactly does that mean? Do we actually look like God? When reading your bible it’s a good practice to put things into context. Read the verse previous and the verse that follows to get a better understanding. In Genesis 1:26 it says that we were created in God’s likeness. God’s likeness meaning reflecting His nature. So do I think we look like God no, but we do reflect his character. We are spiritual creatures, but being in this world we also have our flesh which feeds are sinful nature. Let’s look at some of our spiritual characteristics that come from our creator.

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Forbearance
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness

These are the fruits of God’s Spirit. We are made in the image of these beautiful qualities. The Bible also tells us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. God took 6 days to create the Heavens and the earth then rested on the 7th. You and I are were knit intricately in our mothers womb for 9 months. God takes the time to create us to be as He is.

You may feel worthless like nobody cares. You may have screwed up and lost control but that is what grace is for. God is not surprised of the mistakes you’ve made, He is the one that orders our steps. Your worth and value does not come from anyone but the King of Kings! You are made in the image of greatness! God himself took time to create you the way you are. Each and every day we have to remind ourselves of God’s promises. Jesus died for you on the cross, for each and every hair on your head. The nails that were driven into His hands were because He loves you so much. He wants to give you life to the fullest. Don’t accept abuse or bullying from anyone because you were made the way He intended. God purchased your life with Jesus blood so live! Live without holding back because you are an unfinished masterpiece.

Listen to this uplifting song that tells you and I their is more to come then our failures. Brought to you by MandisaVEVO.

  1. Great explanation about how we have His characteristics rather than sharing His appearance. I have been reading my Bible the last few nights and it is helping me regain my sense of self after a tough incident occurred. Your post is well timed.
