Today's Verse : Genesis 1:27


January 27, 2012

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
We are made in God's image. Not just the man. Not just the
woman. Both male and female are made in God's image! Incredibly,
this is not just true before the Fall. When God made us in the womb
of our mothers (Psalm 139:13-16), he made us in his image (Genesis
9:6). Because people are precious to God, because we reflect
something of the character of our Creator, each person is to be
valued. None is to be denigrated, belittled, or cursed (James
3:9-12). People are precious, not only to God, but also to us
because in some special way they reflect his image.
Almighty Creator, please help me value each person I meet today
because I am consciously aware that you have individually made them
to reflect your character and nature. At the same time, bless me
with spiritual growth as I consciously submit myself to your Spirit
as you transform me to be more like you each day. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.
