It changes everything when you understand who you truthfully are. Not who the world says you are, but rather who God says you are: thoughtfully and carefully crafted, valued and loved, intended for eternal life in the image of your Maker.
Moses writes, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27)
Lest we should miss the point, the word “created” is repeated three times in reference to the man and woman. God wants us to understand He created us; we were not the result of random chance. (James Trent)
Jesus answered, "Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female."
and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its creator.
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God.
Indeed, ask now concerning the former days which were before you, since the day that God created man on the earth, and inquire from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything been done like this great thing, or has anything been heard like it?
