You Are God's Highly Valued Masterpiece!

Lorna Nichols - Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Scripture tells us that on the first day of Creation, God created the light of day and dark of night.  On the second day, the sky and atmosphere were created. On the third day, God created the earth, seas, and vegetation.  On the fourth day, the sun, moon, and stars were created.  Sea life and birds came into being on the fifth day. On the sixth day, God created land animals.  Everything God created on each of these days was good. 

After creating land animals, God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us’” (Genesis 1:26).  What does it mean to be made in the image of God? We know that we are not exactly like God because God is a Spirit with no physical body. We also know that God created us, which means He is Superior to us. So, being made in the image of God most probably means that we were made to display God’s righteous character.  God gave us some of His attributes. He gave us the ability to think and to reason, to communicate, to love, to forgive, to show kindness, and so on.  

Just think!  We were created in the very image of God to display His righteous character.  Before creating human beings, God had already created everything else in the world and said it was good. But, when God created us humans, Genesis 1:31 says, “God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!”   In other words, we are more than just good to God. We are very good to God. We were made in the image of God and He highly values each and every one of us! 

In Isaiah 43:7, God tells us why He created us. God says, “Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory.”  We were created for God’s glory. Our purpose is to glorify our Creator through our words—the things we say; and our actions—the things we do.  Apostle Paul says it like this in Ephesians 2:10, “We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” In other words, you’re valuable to God and He has a purpose and a plan for your life!!  As you go throughout your day, repeat this thought to yourself over and over again: I’m valuable to God and He has a purpose and a plan for my life!!

Hi. I see that you don't update your blog too often. I know that
writing content is boring and time consuming. But did you know that there
is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from article directories or other pages from your
niche)? And it does it very well. The new posts are unique and pass the copyscape test.

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser
compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

Other then that, very good blog!
