Reflection, Joe Varghese
Has life recently thrown you a curve ball? Or put you in a situation where you are second guessing yourself? Feeling lost? When I have days like this, I need to remind myself what God has planned for me to be in Genesis 1:26-27. “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness…’ So God created man in his own image.” We can draw our confidence that our identity is from the image of God in several ways just from Genesis 1:
- His brilliant creativity. God has given each one of us unique gifts and talents to create, embark on ideas, make improvements, and help each other.
- We can also be in awe that “in likeness” God gave us the intellectual ability to hear and understand Him, more than any other animal or creation.
- He wanted to have a relationship with you, so we would know how to have relationships with each other.
Life becomes more purposeful when we understand we are uniquely imprinted to reflect God’s image.
