26 Then God said, “Let us make humanity in our image to resemble us so that they may take charge of the fish of the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and all the crawling things on earth.”27 God created humanity in God’s own image, in the divine image God created them, male and female God created them. Genesis 1:26,27
The first chapter of the first book of The Bible tells of God’s complete creation – the land, seas, sky, creatures that dwelled therein, and then “God created humanity in God’s own image….” , and when He saw all that He had created, it pleased Him. We read in verse 31 that “God saw everything he had made: it was supremely good.” Clearly, God brought Man into being to rule over the land and reflect His image ( v. 26,28)
Let us pray together : Creator God, Loving God – it is because of You that we are here , your people, ready and desirous to serve You. Help us Lord, to be good and faithful stewards of this land , our Earth. Guide us to show love to all, caring spirits to all, compassion to a hurting and sometimes upsetting world of ours. Show us how to calm that upset, how to heal the wounds of anger and destruction. We pray all this in Your Healing Name, Lord Jesus…..Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
