Question? How are we created in God’s image?
Genesis 1:26-27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Simply put we are created in God’s image with some of the attrubutes that he has.
– Free Will
– Eternal exsistence
God gave mankind the ability to…
– Think and Understand… that is what separates us from the animal world.
The freedom to…
– Have Free Will (the choice to make good or bad decisions).
And created us to…
– Live Eternally
Each and every person has…
– A SOUL: The seat of their emotions and appitites (desires).
– A SPIRIT: The seat of their intelligence.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Each and every person (Their Soul & Spirit) WILL LIVE forever either in heaven or hell based upon if they have or have not believed that Jesus Christ Died on the cross and shed his blood, was Buried, and Resurrected 3 days later as the complete payment alone for their sins.
If a person HAS NOT trusted Christ as their saviour then one second AFTER they die hell will be their destiny for eternity.
John 3:18,36 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (36) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
