Restored to the Image of God

12 Sep

Bible Verse

Genesis 1: 26 –  Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”

Your Discipleship Minute

Do you know what it means to be made in the image of God?  It is about reflecting the majesty of God’s creation back upon Him to glorify our creator.

And do you want to know the amazing part?  God created us in His image, knowing that we would take the precious gift of free will and choice and choose to disobey Him in the Garden.  He knew that we would continue to choose sin down through the many generations of mankind.  But He also had a plan for restoring us in His image.

That plan was to become human Himself, born of a woman in Bethlehem in a lowly manger.

We could not restore ourselves to our former glory, so Jesus restored us by becoming one of us and defeating sin and death for us.

Action Point

If you have trusted Christ as your savior, you have been restored to the former glory of mankind. Even though the outside doesn’t show it, inside we have been made new.

When Jesus returns, the glory of Jesus Christ inside of us will burst forth and we will be changed in an instant, made to be like Him, who was found to be like us.  Praise God!
