And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.– 2 Corinthians 3 : 18
The GOD who created this mind-blowing universe, the vast skies and deep oceans with creatures and plants thriving with just the power of HIS WORDS...stooped down, took the dust of the earth in His hands and sculpted a beautiful creature in HIS OWN IMAGE AND LIKENESS, blew His spirit into its nostrils…& that is how human beings came into existence. You are not an accident..You are God’s handiwork, the precious art of HIS HANDS!
‘Image of God’ or ‘Image of Man’..Whom do you resemble today?
You might have heard people say, ‘Hey, you look exactly like your mom!..or ‘Doesn’t she resemble her father?’..Yes, being born as humans, we may physically resemble our parents or relatives. What about the inner resemblance of our soul?..Does it look like its Creator’s?
God’s word encourages us today to behold His glorious face to get transformed into better human beings, living the purpose of our creation. When the power of the Holy Spirit resides in you, your weaknesses get converted into strength, your sicknesses get changed into health and your failures begin to climb the ladder of success. This is what makes a person to be called the ‘Image of God’. Your inner resemblance must bring out the beauty of God’s compassion and truth to the people around. Make this as your motto in life!
