What does God look like? Do we look like Him? Does He look like us? We are told that human beings are made in the image of God. You gotta be kidding! Skinny ones, fat ones, tall, short, male, female, red-yellow-black-and white? Are they all precious in His sight?
The image of God? Yes, but not what we ordinarily think because we only think of the physical. We were made spiritual. Do you feel, cry, suffer, love? Is your life a sacrament? Can you praise and bless and commune and give gifts? Can you cooperate, create, have clarity of vision, write books and sing songs? Do you have a will and can you hear? Can you plant and grow?
We are separate yet different. We like color and music and dreaming. We like beauty and cleanliness and honesty and goodness. WE WERE MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE! The Lord God did all this on purpose.
“ … God’s kingdom is within you.”
Yes, we are far more through the Holy Spirit and He through us than our minds can conceive!
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
“For He’s more wonderful than my mind can conceive.
He’s more wonderful than my heart can believe.
He goes beyond my highest hopes and fondest dreams.
He’s everything that my soul ever longed for;
Everything He’s promised and so much more;
More than amazing,
More than marvelous,
More than miraculous could ever be.
He’s more than wonderful;
That’s what Jesus is to me.”
