Genesis 1:17 So El-him created humankind in His image, in the image of El-him He created them; male and female He created them.
El-him (G-d, Mighty Creator) created humankind, we are humankind so He created us. Not only did He form us and breathe life into us, He created us in His image. Now I have heard that a lot over the years, “you are made in the image of El-him” but what does that really mean?
When something is made in the image of something, it might look similar or it might have similar qualities and with that you could go to say that we each have a piece of the Creator inside of us.
Look around at humankind, the same humankind that is created in the image of the Creator. There are so many different people they look different they talk different they act different, and you don’t even have to leave the country or even your neighborhood to see that. So often people have the feeling that Ad-nai is trying to hind from us that He will not show His face, but look around you. Ad-nai has placed pieces of Him all around you, He is so vast that He needed to make so many unique human-beings, so we can get a better picture of who He is, is He really hiding or Is He all around us, and are people really distracting you from seeing Ad-nai or by seeing people will we see our Creator better?
If we were to acknowledge that, we are image bares of the Mighty Creator how would that change the way we look at others, ourselves and Ad-nai?
