Gen 1:27 “So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
God created us in His image. He used Himself as a model to create you. You are a reflection of Him. I like to picture this process as God looking in the mirror and painting a self portrait and each portrait He paints is different. Different shapes, sizes, colors, genders…etc. Yet each portrait is an image of Him. How beautiful is that?!
We are all His image. I look like God. You look like God. Our Creator is not just one specific looking figure. He is more then what we could ever imagine. Our neighbor, our friends, our family, our enemies all look like the Creator. It is our differences that make this world beautiful. It is our differences that give a true reflection of God. You, as imperfect as you are, are a perfect image of God. When you look at yourself in the mirror, know that the Creator of the universe is looking back at you.
