Category: Made in the Image of God
God wants you to speak to him, with a heart that seeks him, and wants to know him more. He does not want some ritualist repitition. He also wants you to know him. The Bible tells us all that we need to know about him. Meditate on his word and tell him what’s on your heart and the Holy Spirit will guide and teach you.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” V 9
Who do you say, Jesus is? He clearly states that he has the power over life and death along with granting eternal life. Do you believe? See below for a video on the Messiah.

Do You Believe?
The Apostles had not received the Holy Spirit yet. They had done many things for Jesus. Once they received the Spirit, they were able to do great things with Boldnes in the name of Jesus. How about you? Do you Believe? I believe and am not ashamed of the Gospel! May we declare with boldness, that in this sinful world, there are trials, but we have Victory thru Jesus. Not in world systems, man’s wisdom, world leaders, or any other created thing. Is is only through King Jesus!
One of the huge foundations of our faith, is that the bible is Gods living, spoken Word. This verse says…….GOD created MAN in his image. Think about that for moment. We have a likeness of God’s characteristics. We are by no means, the same as God, but like him. I think this should be something that we hold dear, to our hearts. Even though we are imperfect, God loves us dearly. Shouldn’t we do the same, not only in the church, but also, to a lost and dying world. Not because we are so good, but because God is so good! It truly is, and forever will be amazing Grace. May fill us with this wonderful truth today, that we might strengthened and encouraged today, that we might do the same for others.
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Genesis 1:27 NASB
Don’t let anyone fool you, by false truth. We have been made new, and are being made into the image of God, everyday, as we seek his truth and walk in Jesus footsteps. How do we do it? For most people, it is one step at a time, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. For some, it is a giant leap. Whichever way, it is for you, may the Lord give you clear vision in 2020, as we all seek to share his Love, Grace & Mercy and share his Good News.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB
Jesus, being fully God, and fully man, is the creator of all things. We are made in his image, to reflect his image and glory. Key word here is reflect. We always reflect it back to him. He receives the Glory, not us.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things have been created through Him and for Him.
Colossians 1:16 NASB
Just as God chose Jesus, he chose us before the foundations of the earth. May we follow Jesus lead, and may the Father be well pleased in our service, and our proclaiming the Good News to both Jew and Gentile.
” behold , my servant whom I have chosen ; my beloved in whom my soul is well – pleased ; I will put my spirit upon Him , and he shall proclaim justice to the gentiles .
Matthew 12:18 NASB
We Are Not Ashamed………. For I am not a ashamed of the gospel , for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. May the grant us all strength, to stand firm in our faith, through his Holy Spirit. Thank you, Jesus.
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ” but the righteous man shall live by faith .”
Romans 1:17 NASB
