The Second Day

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. — Genesis 1:26 (KJV)

Here Bible says, “Let us make man….”. It’s plural because our God is three in one—God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Trinity is the word that people later invented to describe this fundamental nature of God. Before human beings were created, God made other living creatures first (Genesis1:20-25). Then God made us in a unique way that we are made in his image and we are made after his likeness. We are different from animals not because of we are the result of a perfect evolution, but we were made to be like this. God has made us the ruler of this planet.

It has been very beneficial for me to know that I am created in God’s image and after his likeness. Just as I have inherited the gene from my earthly father,  I have also got the ‘DNA’ from my heavenly Daddy, the BEST EVER Gene I can possibly get. How could I sometimes feel worthless anymore? Now, I understood that I am made of the best qualities and personalities, and so are you! Additionally, we are also made to rule, with love and compassion of course.

It is said that our original mission is to LOVE over all that God has made. However, the first thing we need to learn is to love ourselves in positive ways, that means NO self-pity, NO unworthy feelings, NO lacking of confidence, NO self destructions and so on. We are dearly and wonderfully made by God, and he treasures and value us so much, and how could we not treasure ourselves in the same way?

One response to “The Second Day”

    This verse explains a mystery that no scientist can answer, ‘Why only human beings on this earth have the desire of seeking God?’ We know the fact that the intellengence level of a chimpanzee or a dolphin can somehow reaches that of a child who is old enough to go to Sunday. But why we don’t see any other creatures apart from human trying to seek God? (which I believe in the key that makes human unique from animals) The answer lies in here: God created us after his likeness. God has put a heart that is designed for seeking him in every single human being right from the beginning.

    At the moment God said this, Adam hasn’t been created yet. But God has already prepared a role for him: the ruler of all the living creature of the earth. Yes, God created this plannet and all the things above it, on it and in it just for you and me. He has given us a wonderful world in which we can start a love story with him.
