Genesis 1.26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our own image,after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
“Imatation is the Greatest form of flattery”!!
Do you see what God has done?
His image was duplicated and put on earth to be set as an example of Himself, of who he was, what he was, and why he was. We are his spitting image of himself to be seen as the creator,the designer, the caretaker,and the representation of all mankind.
We are the model. the representative, The Adam, of God.
We are to just BE the image. that’s it. period.
Do you understand? This was God’s design. Nothing else is to be done,nothing to be said, nothing,nothing for us to do.
God has taken it upon himself to set things right.
Let me take this for ride that you might not see, in the scriptures, God’s desire is not only to rid the cause of the fall(sin) but also of the punishment that was given out to mankind. (This is very relevent, and most of the time not addressed in discussions of the resurrection of Jesus) something to think about. God’s desire was to kill two birds with one stone, to use the old adage. God would send his son to represent the sinless of man, to die for its repercussion of the act, but to the unsuspecting world he not only goes thru death but he comes out the other side to conquer it thru the resurrection of Jesus.
Now, with the crime(sin) and the punishment(death) being taken care of, it is now in short, a new creation(LIFE) without the baggage as before. It is now the true ‘image’ of God on his ‘land’ and his ‘kingdom’.
