KEEPING IT REAL

Genesis 1:27

 

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them

 

 

LESSON

 

God’s Work: “God created man.” This is the truth about our origin. God called into existence that which had no previous existence, and the highest act of this divine work was to create human life. When you read the claims of the Bible, consider the evidence and decide that the document is the Word of God – you are glad to read Genesis 1:27 and accept this truth of man’s origin.

God’s Distinction: “male and female He created them.” Because of the systematic working of error in our culture, we have to talk about things we thought we would never have to bring up. I had no idea in my earlier years I would be addressing this peculiarity of our culture: the blending and blurring of gender differences! That distinction God built into nature is today denied, re-defined and perverted, to accommodate the culture (and ultimately, the perverse desires of individuals serving their own lusts). This is where we are in the culture of 2016.

God created man in His image; God made man to share in relationship with one another. As we follow Jesus example as the perfect friend, we can improve our relationships. What image do we see when we look in the mirror? Who is that person in the reflection? As I thought about this passage I began to realize that all of us look at life in slightly different ways. We see each other through different mirrors.
