In the case of human-kind; we were created in the Image of God Himself…. By…no other, than… God Himself. No odd-ball… or leftover pieces…were thrown in the mix. 1 Corinthians 11:7 – For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. The point here is that God, because He made us in His Own Image… has given us the very ingredients to be “all that we can be.”
God wants us to be successful. Matthew 5:48 tells us… Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. He intends for us to fulfill our dreams and expectations, because our ingredients are perfect. We are the ones… you and me… who throw the train off the track. It is because we, like Peter and Thomas, are in doubt about the role that Jesus plays in our lives.
We are reminded in…Isaiah 54-17 – No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.” And, then, in John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
With God on our side, then how can we fail? …Blessings…cjlb… 2/14/17
