Your Daily Dose of Boldness – His Image: Why Are We Created in the “Image of God?”

His Image: Why Are We Created in the “Image of God?”

In Genesis 2:6 Scripture tells us, “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness…” In Genesis 5:1 we are told, “This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in His own likeness.” This is referring to the trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Throughout scripture these three expressions of God share in an intimacy of relationship. God in His divine providence chose to create this same capacity in man – intellectual mind, physical body, human spirit.

It is clear in scripture that God desires to come into a meaningful loving relationship with His creation. Exodus 20:3-11 (First 4 of the 10 Commandments) indicates that we were created to worship, and we are commanded to worship God alone.

“You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses His name. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

Exodus 20:3-8

In Ephesians we find that we were “predestined for sonship” (1:5) and that “He makes known to us the mystery of His will” (1:9) for His pleasure. God’s pleasure is loving us and being loved by us. You may say, “I don’t want to love God.” You have that prerogative because He created you a free moral agent, however in choosing to not love God, you have failed to respond to the basic purpose of your existence. If this is your choice, do not be surprised when your life seems empty, frustrating and useless.

Part of the joy of having something beautiful is the sharing of that beauty with someone you love. God wanted to share the glories and the beauty of His creation; hence He created man in His image and likeness that He might fellowship and share with them all the glory and beauty of His love. In turn, God desires us to share with Him in the same ways!

We are created in the image of God so that He can share the depth of His love and the beauty of His love and the beauty of His creation with someone else who has the capacity to appreciate it!
