Topic The Image Of God Is In You [Monday February 5, 2018]
“And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…….” Genesis 1:26 (KJV)
You are made in the image of God. That means what you are inside is the real man. Our real person is not seen, it is inside. In other words, our true self is inside not this outward body. You are a spirit, you have a soul and you live in a body. The body is a container given to you for access here on earth. So you are not a body. This same suit we call body limited even Jesus in some areas. He could only be in one place at a time. He couldn’t be in many places at the same time. That is why He said, it is expedient for me to go away. If I go away, it is better for you because I will be able to operate in many parts through the Holy Spirit.
The earth is designed in such a way that it limits the body. But God is unlimited and so everything that God is has been deposited inside you. The image of God is in you. In other words, if God is not limited, you are not. The thing that makes life consistent and successful is already inside you. That is what you are and that is who you are. Whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified. (Romans 8:29-30) So there is a glory seat that belongs to you.
You are not called for shame. You are not called for disgrace or disappointment. God did not allow you to be born to just pass through this earth or to pass time. You are called to make an impact. There is something unique about you. There is a glory that is inside you that will set you apart among many equals. You will manifest in Jesus name.
