On The Sixth Day God Made You - His Family

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

So God created human beings in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.     Genesis 1:26-27

In creation, we know God made everything from the heaven to the earth. He made everything in 5 days and on the 6th day, he made all sorts of animals on land and finally for His crown jewel; He made us, humans – in the likeness of God’s very own image and the only creature that carries the breadth of God. We are destined to reign over all other creatures.

God, our Father made us, to be like Him. We are the only one that carry His breath. He made us as His own; His family.

In all the 5 days, our Father declared His creation was good. But on the 6th day, after creating us, our Father said it was very good and rested on the 7th day, when all creation was completed.  And our Father blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation. He probably use His rest day to enjoy His creation; to enjoy the company of His family – us.

Everyone of us is very precious. This is because each one of us carries the very image our Father. If you are feeling all alone and feeling defeated; when you think you are facing an adversity all by yourself. Know this -> You are not alone. You are destined to reign victorious. You are part of God the Father’s very own; you are part of a very powerful family. As God the Father rested to enjoy our company; we too should enjoy His company and be at rest.

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”   Exodus 33:14 (NIV)

  1. King David says:

    not sure your comment has anything to do with this particular post, but you did bring out a very interesting issue… Salvation has to come by believing in Jesus Christ and be baptised, which I fully agree under most circumstances. But let’s not get too juristical. Remember the thief on the cross, (Luke 23:39-43), he didn’t have time to get baptised, (he was rather tied up. 🙂 ) But Jesus said he will be with Him in paradise. It’s only through Jesus Christ alone can we be assured of salvation.

    By grace alone does not mean God selects a few and “force” them to believe in Jesus for salvation. I think you are confusing salvation with the term “elect”, which refers to the chosen, whom God (outside the boundary of time) knows beforehand who will choose to believe in Christ – thus gaining salvation, and who doesn’t.

    And yes, it is only by grace through faith in Christ alone… and many Scriptures supports that.

    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesian 2:8-9 (NIV)

    Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. Romans 5:8 (NIV)

    It is not about outward rituals or appearance, it is an inward transformation through personal relationship with our Saviour. Once there is faith, there is grace from Jesus to offer salvation.

    Salvation offered by Christ is not cheap; it cost His life. But it is not difficult too; you only need to believe.

    For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten ([a]unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. John3:16 (AMP)
