Genesis 1:27, So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.
Last Sunday, I began preaching a new series entitled, ‘Explore God.’ I asked and answered the question, “Does Life Have A Purpose?” Part of the answer to that question involves answering the question, “What Makes Us Unique From The Animals?” Although all of God’s creation has value and worth, humans occupy a special place in the world because we alone were created in God’s image. The Bible says, “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” Did you read that? Men and women are created in the image of God.
Colossians 3:10 says, “…put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” There it is again, the image of The Creator. So the Bible clearly states that unlike the animals, humans possess God’s own image. As a reflection of God’s character, wisdom, and authority, each and every one of us has dignity, worth, and therefore we have PURPOSE. To answer the question, yes, our life has real purpose because you were created in the image of God. Join me this Sunday, and I’ll answer the question, “Is There A God?”
So, be purposeful today!
