Created in His Image

Created in His ImageGenesis 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.

What Does Created in His Image Mean to You?

 

Sometimes when I feel down and distant from God, it does me well to remember that I created in His image. I’m not a mistake, and I’m not an animal, so I shouldn’t act like one! Instead, you when I have been created for a higher purpose, which is to worship God in Spirit and Truth for ever and ever.

Later on in Genesis you believe that Adam and Eve allowed sin into their lives, and corrupted and beautiful image of God and mankind should be. But sin did not “unmake” them, and it did not lower us to the level of other created beings. It may have tainted us, and separated us from God, but it did not deflect us from our primary calling of worshiping Him.

So when you lead worship, remember that you are created in the image of Almighty God, and so are the people you are leading in worship! We are called to worship the Lord, we will be doing it for eternity and when we worship Him I believe that we moved closer to that perfect image of God we were before the fall of mankind.

So worship leading is not just something you do on a Sunday, it is a call to greatness and a restoration of the image of God in our lives. As we worship Him we learn more about Him and grow closer to Him.

When we lead worship we are doing what we were created originally to do, and we become created in His Image, the image of God that He wants us to be.
