In His 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

If we are made in the image and likeness of God, we don’t have to look very far to see the nature of God. In some respects, like sin, we are so very far from His image. But a sinful nature was not in His initial plan of how we were made.

Let’s take a look at how we are made and one big thing it can reveal about our God.

We have an innate desire for intimacy and love.   I’m not just talking about physical closeness, but the desire to know and love someone deeply. If we’re made that way and it is good (although sometimes the way we seek to fill that desire is not) and we’re made in the image of God, then our God wants the same thing. He already knows and loves us deeply, He wants for us to seek Him, know Him and love Him. Although human love in its most pure sense can still never match the love of God, He still wants that with us. Our free will, our free choice to love Him. As much as He wants to draw us near, we need to want to be drawn closer.
