Restoration Images of God
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds in the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and upon all the reptiles that creep on earth. ”
So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female he created them. ”
Human creation is very unique, compared with other creations, because humans have a piece of content / body and non-material / spirit and soul. Similar to the image of God that does not mean similar in terms of material / body because God is Spirit (John 4:24).
The creation of man is an outstanding work, the creation of a holy without spot but still holds it own free will, so that creation reflects God’s likeness in terms of mental, moral and social.
In the case of human mental and rational beings are willing to use his mind to vote, this is a reflection of reason and free will of God. And morally speaking, man is created in righteousness and perfect innocence that reflects the holiness of God.
Socially, man was created for fellowship and this is a reflection of the trinity of God and His love. This is the image of God in the person who received the highest award for her children and grandchildren fill the earth to conquer and master it. “God bless them and God said unto them:” With children and grandchildren is and multiply, fill the earth and conquer that, the power had been on the fish in the sea and the birds in the air and above all the beasts that crawl on earth . (Genesis 1:28).
But the God-given free will by the first human being misspent, to overthrow the humans and damage the image of God, the Devil wore a snake to enter the sacred heart in contention absurd logic that the human helper provided by God.
The snake was not going to men, but to the woman because she knows the power of God commands received directly by Adam before the air is made more powerful (Genesis 2:16).
Women in the question and answer with a snake, that alone is the beginning of the sin of discord will be the law of God, Satan, waking earlier vacillation in our hearts then did he induce a feeling of revolt against God, then we begin to not trust the word of God, our eyes will begin to look offense -violation of the visible had no longer taboo for us to do, then we begin to look our husband or wife to whom we are equally immersed in things that are unclean before God.
God’s image had been damaged and to restore it takes time throughout our lives, a reversal of the image of God to return in the sanctity and holiness is a long line of our lives, sometimes we have to fall in the knees and suffered injuries serious enough and then we got again.
God often allows us to experience such things to our heart’s vessels to form a proper vessel before God of the toughest to become the winners in the Kingdom of God.
But we should do first is to abandon our old man is the desires of our flesh which resulted in a prolonged feud with God. (Romans 8:7).
The Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 5:7 “Throw out the old leaven, that ye may become the new dough, because ye are unleavened. For our paschal lamb has been sacrificed, even Christ. Therefore let us feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread, which is purity and truth. ”
Jesus Christ has come to replace the man Adam who failed, in obedience, He gave an example of true obedience to us when He died on the cross to restore the image of God, 1 Corinthians 15:22 says: “For as all die in the communion with Adam, so shall all be made alive in Christ.
