Images of God and mankind

April 28th, 2012

Just now I was reflecting on how as humans we have been created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26). This means we have God imprinted into our DNA.

As I reflected on this I began to think about Christ and what image He took on when He lived amongst us. Let us have a look at what Philippians chapter two says…

Philippians 2:5-8
5  Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
8  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death– even death on a cross!

I find this incredibly amazing that when God created us it was in His image. And when Jesus came to earth He took on our image.

There is something profound in this Divine and Human circle. The Creator made the created, then became like His creation to save us and bring us back to the Divine.

It makes me feel loved and it makes me feel special. And it makes me love God even more.

God Bless,
