Day #1: I am created in the image of God


What does it mean to be human? It means we are created in the image of God for the glorious reality of being in permanent fellowship with Him. Ravi Zacharias

Genesis 1:27, “So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Welcome to day number 1 and thanks for joining me on this 21-day journey of discovering who we are in Christ.
If you do not have an image problem or struggle with issues concerning your self-esteem or confidence, then you are one of the most fortunate people on planet earth. But the fact remains that every one of us struggles with some kind of complex.
That is why it is important that we are reminded that we are created in the very image of God. What that means is – I am defined not by what my culture, others, or even myself think about me. I am defined by who God says I am.
Psalm 139:14: I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
I am not a mistake
I am beautiful
I am powerful
I am unique and special, one of a kind
I am talented
I am gifted
I am creative
I am loved. Someone thinks highly of you, someone is crazy about you
I am strong
I am a winner
I am Smart and intelligent
Colossians 1:16 – For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him and for him
So tell yourself today that you are a Masterpiece… because that is exactly who you are.
Prayer:
Father, I am so thankful that you created me in your image and your likeness. Thank you that you purposed my entire life to be conformed to the very image of Christ your Son. So today let everything that does not resemble you fall by the way, and stamp in me the exact representation of your being. In Jesus Name – Amen!

There are three things I think about every moment of everyday... they consume me deeply. How to: 1. Refine my theological understanding 2. sharpen my ethical rigor 3. and heighten my devotional intensity. These are the things I write about. Welcome you to my blog...
