He Created Us In His Own Image

 So God created man in his own image, 
   in the image of God he created him; 
   male and female he created them.

  And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28

Wow reflect on that for a moment........

We were created to reflect the image of God Himself!

I wonder what the angels thought when they first saw Adam and Eve? What a glorious privilege to be made in the image of the One who knit us together in our mother's womb!

I play that I  never take this blessing for granted. May you and I always be in awe of the fact that we were created to look just like God. When Jesus came to the earth 2,000 years ago, He sealed the deal by making a way for us to be conformed into His image (Romans 8:29) inside and out so that He could be the firstborn of many brothers and sisters.

I find myself praying this 4th day of 2012  that I would live in the light of our Father's original blessing to be fruitful, to multiply and to have dominion throughout the whole earth with the knowledge that we were created to look just like our heavenly creator sustainer,  and redeemer.

Awesome! <br />
We were created more than to just “look like” God. We also have some of His traits. God is eternal – so are we. God likes to create – so do we. God loves – so can we.

Good daily manna. Thank you for sharing this reflection.
