"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 thin that creeps on the earth." - Genesis 1:26 "For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren." - Romans 8:29 God created man in His own image. Ideally, without sin, man would reflect the image of God in all things. But sin has corrupted that which was good in the sight of God. God created a solution for the fall of sin and it is through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. Now, those who trust Christ as their Lord and Saviour to them God has preserved to be conformed to the image of His Son. Each day in the life of a believer is the sanctification to be like our Lord. But this also requires yielding to the leading of the Holy Spirit and walking in His will. We can be more used by God when we yield to His calling and when we allow the Holy Spirit to change us in the image of Christ each day. Are you letting the Holy Spirit change you in the image of Christ? Let each one of us examine ourselves. Praise the Lord!
