Today's Reading: Genesis 1-2
Key Verse: Genesis 1:27
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
"God created," "Elohim bara" (Hebrew). This Name for God is always plural, yet in the Hebrew language it always takes a singular verb (Genesis 1:1).
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are at work to make something out of nothing.
In the rest of the story the verb is "Asah," which is what a carpenter does when he works with material already in existence. Chapter 2 is an expansion of what God did in chapter 1.
We are made in His Image. We are not just physical beings. We have a capacity for a life beyond, for communication with God, and God with us. Like God, we are intended to live forever!
Because we are made in His image, we can come to know Him more as we daily read from the revelation He has chosen to give us, the Bible!
We have a free will, the freedom to choose. We can ignore Him and even reject Him, or we can learn of Him, opening our hearts and minds to Him as our God, believing in the great Creator God!
