He Died on the Cross For Us

I will follow wherever you lead, my Lord!

By Teresa Smeigh

Created in God’s Image!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“When we learn that mankind was created in God’s image, we often think of it in the abstract: The great mass of humanity was created in the image of God. But what God wants us to grasp is the personalness of each of us being created in his image. I was created in his image. You were created in his image.

The greatness of this realization, when personalized, is life-changing. It’s also the place every Christian needs to start when they think of their assignment here on earth.

Each of us was carved by God for two reasons: the first and foremost is that we might know, love, and obey God. He desires fellowship with each of us. The second reason is that we each have a calling while we’re here on earth. Finding our calling begins with seeing how God has carved us. In what ways are we created to serve him best?

The greatness of these two reasons for our being created in God’s image can motivate us for our entire life. We can never grow tired of knowing, loving, and obeying God. And when we enter into our calling, we can find lasting happiness working in God’s vineyard using our unique talents. (Part of Post From —52 Weeks Through the Bible by Harvest House)”

Dear Father,

I love you and will obey you wholeheartedly with all of my being. I will look for my calling here on earth even if it takes my entire life. My heart and soul belong to you. Please forgive me any mistakes I may make while serving you.

Amen!

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23
