Serving Jesus in Our Community

Bible Notes

Genesis 1:26-27 (27.01.20)

Genesis 1:26-27 NIV
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
[27] So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

Made in God’s image – what does this mean? This has been long discussed and debated. Many now think that as well as being guardians of the world, this has to do with us being made to live in community, just as God lives in the community of God the Father, Son and Spirit, hence being made in his image as women and men.

Father, Son and Spirit, help us reflect your unity and mutual love in our relationship with others.
