Our Shelter - Today with Allen Jackson - May 26, 2017

We bear His image!

Gen 1:27 (NIV®)

God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Human beings are the image-bearers of Almighty God. We are not simply the highest rung on the evolutionary ladder or the mammal with the most fully developed cognitive power. There is something that separates human beings from the rest of creation: we are created in the image of God. That single fact gives us an inherent dignity regardless of gender, race, assets, or IQ. Our fallen nature tempts us to categorize and label others and assign them relative worth, but God sees each of us as unique and valuable because we bear His image.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, thank You for creating us in your image. Thank You for giving humans worth above anything else in Your created order. Give me discernment to see others through Your eyes and to love others as You love them. In Jesus’ name, amen.
