Topic: REVELATION FROM GENESIS ( part 1 )
Text : Genesis 1:26-28
26: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27: So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.
God made the world through his word, He also transform lives through His word. But mere reading or memorizing passages of the scriptures will not bring transformation, God reveals the mysteries of his word to transform our lives, for instance Jesus did speak in parables and later explained in clear terms to His disciples when they seek to know more about his word.
Revelation brings transformation not recitation, I am sharing here the mystery behind the existence of man, in verse 26 of our passage: And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness…’ There are 2 important words to give attention here; IMAGE and LIKENESS. Image is defined as a visual representation of a person or an object, it is also defined as a standard, typical or perfect example.
Likeness is defined as similarity in appearance or character or nature between persons or things. Any of the 2 words means God is making a person like Him, man is a visual representation of God, God is invisible, he needed to make someone who will physically represent him. One major attribute of God I want to share here is the creative aspect of God. God created a man that will have His attributes, one of those attributes is creativity, man is meant to be creative, he is endowed with mental ability to make sense out of no sense.
Everyone created by God is mentally empowered to create a beautiful life for his or herself, you might not be born in a wealthy family, you might have no one to lift you up in life, you might not even have enough education, you might even appear feeble to face the challenges of life but you gat mental ability to figure out good things, good life, great destines for yourself.
We all had no choice of who gave birth to us, the country or state in which we are born, we had no choice of our complexion or stature, but we all got choice of the kind of life we want to live. You can decide to settle down for the less while another person goes for the best, it is important to know that life deals with you based on your mindset and approach to life.
You are made in God’s image and likeness, and if God could and can change things you can also change things by the grace of God, you are not destined to be miserable or poor in life. God has given you ability to turn things around, be creative and positive in your thinking, expect and work towards the best in life. I will continue next tomorrow. God bless you.
* Lord guide my thoughts into creative thinking.
