In the image of God

It’s amazing how much knowledge is tucked away in just a single verse. If you want to go to bed full tonight then take a couple of minutes and read this…no bones here, this is all meat.

Genesis 1:27 (KJV) 27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

The plurality of God is woven in the Trinity and what an honor it is to be created in his image. But what does it mean exactly to be created in his image? For one it means we serve. As head of the church, Jesus served the body of the church. To uphold the image of God we are to serve one another.
The more obvious part of being created in the image of God is one we often overlook. Man alone can’t represent the image of God, as God is a plurality. The Father, Son and Holy Ghost…the trinity. It is the unity of God that is the image we were created in. Only male and female together can represent the plurality that is the image of God. Just as God is a unity, husband and wife unite to become one flesh. Humanity as a whole completes our representation of this plurality. So what good reason is there to be so hateful towards one another? We separate ourselves daily when it is in fact our unity that represents our creation in the image that is God.
