Image of God

On the weekend of my birthday, I received a revelation from God – what it meant to be created in the image of God. It was an answer to a recent question that has been surfacing in my mind with regards to the topics “Human self-development and the work place” and “humanity” and “evolution”.

As an arts student, I have preferred to be a humanist. (Roughly speaking, Humanism is a group of philosophies and ethical perspectives which emphasize the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers individual thought and evidence (rationalism, empiricism) over established doctrine or faith (fideism).) This has especially been so since I entered the workplace. But there is a type of humanisim that embraces christianity

Experiencing how people behave at work full time,it has led me to think of people as glorious self-made constructions, or as  organisms with a selfish agenda. Two opposites. that just goes by humanistic assumptions,which much of secular society goes by. However, I still had a question “who are we, really” and it was in my subconscious.

I have always read the verse “created in the image of God” and just understood it surface value. but now i understand better what it means. we are created to be LIKE GOD – that means having the kind of worth, glory and honour that goes along with it. we have God’s attributes – love, holiness, grace,mercy,justice, righteousness, creativity, diligence and so on.

Isn’t it wonderful to have been created in the image of God? Instead of being slaves at the workplace, we have the worth of God-like status. Instead of being cogs in a machine,we have the moral attributes of God designed in us. Instead of being money hungry evolutionary beings, we are crowned with glory.

well, just happyabout the answer to the question “Who am I”.

Daughters of the King

We are daughters of the King…

our hearts are precious to Him,

so we can sing

glory, glory, glory to Him.

Just thought of a random poem for our feminine identities for God:

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Pet 2:9

Indeed, we are not only chosen, but royal. We are not only royal, but also a priesthood. God is declaring our identities in Him. Wake up people, this is who you really are in God!
In other words, we are royalty!

Many times as Christians we do not see how privileged we are to be on God’s side in this dark world, we do not see our true worth and value in the larger scheme of things.

Let’s hold on to how God views us and not be deceived anymore by the lies of the enemy:

You can’t do it
You’re not worth it
You’re not beautiful

As girls our true sense of strength does not lie in what we do, but comes from who’s side we are on, and the power He has bestowed upon us.

So what are we waiting for? Let’s be empowered!
