  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

July 30, 2010 - In His Image

By Gary Rogers

Moses recorded in the details of creation found in Genesis something interesting about our relationship with God. It is interesting how he recorded, “God said, ‘Let there be light.’” “God said, ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water.’” “God said, ‘Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place.’” “God said” continued through the creation of the sun, moon and stars and the creation of creatures in the waters and the birds in the air.

Genesis 1:26 presents a different involvement from God. There is recorded, “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth’” (NKJV). God spoke into existence the light, the land, the sea, the creatures of the sea and air, and the cattle and beasts on the earth. But, when it came to man, God got His hands involved. He made man. He shaped and molded man and formed him as a potter does a clay pot.

God wanted to be more personally involved in the creation of man. God touched and engaged with man during the creation process. God wanted man to be special. God’s plan was dominion over the rest of creation. God wanted man to be a constant reminder of Him, so He created man in His own image.

Today you still bear the image of God. The spiritual enemy of God has done everything possible to destroy your likeness to God, but he can’t undo the work of the master Creator. You still are in the image of God. Your image continues to remind all creation that there is a wonderful, loving God who created everything. When you look in the mirror, you should be reminded of God and His creative power. You must never allow the enemy to cause the reflection of your image to be something less than a representation of the God who created you. God loves you!
