“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. “(Genesis 1:27)
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. While all that He made was good, something deep in His heart was not yet satisfied. So on the 6th day, God created man in His own image.
We read in Genesis 2:7 that He breathed into man’s nostrils the breathe of life.
How close must God have been to Adam, to actually breathe into His nostrils? What a tender moment that must have been, as Adam took his first breathe, opened up his eyes only to see the loving gaze of his Father calling him to life. We are not gods, nor will we ever be gods, but we were made in the image of our Creator. Within each person, there lies a divine DNA imprint that comes from God alone.
We are God’s children and we have been created to reflect His image. When I look at my own children, I can see a little of myself in each one of them. It brings me great joy to see a part of me reflected in them. What joy it must bring to the Father’s heart, when He can see His own likeness being mirrored in us.
Jesus was the exact representation of His Father (Hebrews 1:3) and came to show us what His Father was really like. We have the privilege of having the fullness of the Godhead dwelling in our mortal bodies too! What character traits of Father do you have in your life? Do you have His smile? His touch? His laugh? The next time you look in a mirror, look for the Father in your reflection, for He created you in His own image.
“I am beautiful because God made me in His image”
Heavenly Father, I thank You that I was created in Your image. Help me to see the reflection of Your beauty in my life. Thank You for sustaining me by Your divine DNA imprint in my life. May Your likeness, and the likeness of your Son, be reflected in all that I am, and all that I do. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
