TEXTUAL FOCUS:* _So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them._ (Gen. 1:27)
POINTS OF EMPHASIS
This is not to say that God is male or female, but that God is both unity and diversity. Man and woman in marriage become one and yet they are distinct. Unity in diversity as reflected in man’s relationship with his wife reflects one facet of God’s person-hood.
Also, man somehow is like God in that which distinguished him from the animal world. Man, as distinct from animals, is made in the image and likeness of God. What distinguishes man from animal must therefore be a part of His reflection of God. Man’s ability to reason, to communicate, and to make moral decisions must be a part of this distinction, man reflects God in the fact that he rules over creation. God is the Sovereign Ruler of the universe. He has delegated a small portion of His authority to man in the rule of creation. In this sense too, man reflects God.
As a man, ask yourself if you are really created in His likeness.
Lord, help me to discover your purpose for me.
I shall be made holy and I will stand to rule as a man..
