Topic : WE ARE THE IMAGE OF GOD

It is the will of God that we are Christ-like in our hearts and minds; in everything we say and do. Christ in us is the hope of the world. We are created in the image of God. God is after the restoration of His plan for humanity. The Israelites, who were the blessed people of God were forced to live as slaves in Egypt. Egypt destroyed the image of God along with them. They were slaves in Egypt for 400 years. They became as the Egyptians to not be so oppressed and tortured for their belief in God. Egypt was a picture of the wicked world we live in today. They began to worship false gods and live immoral and wicked lives in much as the people of the world today. They also practiced idolatry. Because of their unbelief, the Israelites never saw the promised Land. Only Caleb and Joshua, who never lost their be let ief in God, saw the promised Land. (Numbers 32:11-12). 

Colossians 1:15; "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:"
Christ is the image of God. We are to be the image of Christ and live our lives accordingly. In Genesis chapter 1, we see all creations of God. God created all the animals, fish, fowls and all living things. He then created the Garden Of Eden. Finally He created man. He created man after creating all vegetation and animals, because He wanted to make sure man's needs would be taken care of. He wanted to make sure man would have enough food to sustain him and all of man's needs would be supplied. Even though we are all different, our fingerprints prove that, we are similar in that, we are created in the image of God.

Romans 8:29; "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."We all are created in the image of Christ. All Christ sees the do, He does also. We must follow Christ as Christ follows God. Anyone who looks at us should see Christ. As the Father hath sent Christ, so He sends us. Christ is God's image and we must live according to His Word. We must follow Christ not this world, or the things of this world. (Romans 12:2). We must walk and speak by the Word of truth. He is the way, the truth and the life.(John 14:6) . We must live by the Truth of God. Because this Truth is life.
