Impressions are Everything

Genesis 1:27 ESV

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

*We are all created to look like God and convey His nature....Yet, many of us do not know what that truly means. We show our lack of understanding by the way some of us conduct ourselves. Our value and our abilities are high because we are created in His image, but some have lost sight of their value and misrepresent ourselves and Him. Whenever we settle for less, choose to behave contrary to what God stands for, view others as less then ourselves, or treat them poorly depicts that we have missed the understanding of being created in His image. Not only should our reflection depict Him, but our behavior should as well. Even what we choose to partake in or be around reflects Him or the lack of our understanding of who He should be within us. The next time you act on something, treat someone a certain way, or indulge in something you should ask yourself if it reflects the image of God? We must work on renewing our minds daily and trusting in Him to understand who we are in Christ, and how we are called to represent Him to others.
