i. to understand what the image of God is, and what it means to be created as such.
ii. to realize what God expects from us as a people created in His image and
iii. to outline the steps to take for the image of God to be fully restored in us.
The image of God is a foundational concept for understanding our significance and purpose. Understanding how we are made in God’s image helps us to see the basis for the dignity and purpose of our life and work. Genesis 1:26-27 recorded that human beings were made in the image of God- both male and female. As Christians, we have obligations to justify this great opportunity (to be created in God’s ImageEph. 5:1-11). As we wish all our Mothers and women blissful Mothering Sunday, may they live long to reap the reward of faithful image of God on earth in Jesus’ name.
1. In Gen 1:27-28; what does man’s creation in the image of God mean, and what is this image of God like? See also Eph 5:1-2; Phil 2:14-15.
2. Humans, male and female, are created in the image of God. In line with Tit 2:1-10, how are our mothers to exhibit the image of God in them?
3. Outline some of the practical steps we need to take for the image of God to be fully restored in the humankind from the following Bible texts: Ps.95:7-8; Acts 3:19; 1 John 4:7-8.
4. What must we do to escape being defiled as a people created in God’s image? Jos.1:8; Dan.1:8; Eph 5:11
Our worth as human beings is connected to our Creator. If God is of great and inestimable worth, then human beings made in his image must be of great value, too. It is expected of us to consciously exhibit this nature of God, after we are born again.
