“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
Out of all of God’s creation, He chose to make us in His own image. What does that really mean? What is the image of God? How can we conform to that image?
It is unfortunate that despite the revealed truth of the Word of God, some still foolishly believe in the lie called evolution; that man came into being as a result of a random act of nature and evolved from a monkey into a human being. If that were the case, why is it that monkeys no longer turn into humans? Though I have not yet seen a monkey turn into a human, I have, however, seen humans turn into monkeys. Only a monkey will believe that he came from a monkey. Man turns into a monkey when he rejects the truth of scripture and does not reflect the image of God, His creator. “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God…” (Psalm 14:1a.) When the enemy causes us to reject who we are in Christ, we face the threat of being destroyed in spiritual warfare. We are at war and the only way he can defeat us is to get us to forget who we are and identify with how we feel, what we do, and how others perceive us. Rather than who God created us to be and how He views us.
