Created in God’s Image
God created man in his own image, in the mage of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27, niv
Nothing like man had ever existed in the universe prior to his creation. Through the power of God’s Word, man was brought into existence from nothing. What sets man so distinctly apart from the animals that he required a separate creative process of God? The distinct difference between man and all other animals and life forms is that man was created in the image of God.
By creating man in His own image, God fixed a gulf between animals and man that will never be bridged. Animals always have been and always will be animals. Man always has been and always will be man. The fossil evidence confirms this. No one has ever found the “missing link,” and no one ever will because it’s missing! It doesn’t exist! Since Creation, approximately ten billion human beings have been born, yet there is not a single recorded case of one ever being genetically less than a human being. Man was created in God’s own image with a capacity to know the Creator in a personal relationship. Do you know Him?
