"...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." - Genesis 1 V26
"...Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." - Matthew 22 V21
When Jesus was asked the question about paying taxes to Caesar, the intention of the Pharisees was to trap Him, but Jesus' answer was wise and yet simple. He said "Render to Caesar that which is Caesar's and to God that which is God's". But what belongs to God? Well, who's image is on man? It is God's, and so we ought to dedicate our lives to God. We belong to God and He created us in His own image for His glory. Sin has separated us from God, but Jesus Christ our Lord, unites us back with God. Have you trusted Him as your Lord and Saviour?
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
