“God’s First Act of Grace: God is Three in One” Pastor Fred spoke from Genesis 1 and John 1 this past Sunday and Saturday at Cornerstone Christian Church. In Genesis 1:26 it says, “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” In our image, not in my image, but our – God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Pastor Fred expands on this throughout the sermon and it is worth listening to.
How subtle it is said to be created in “our image”, hearing this struck me because you know that you our created in God’s image and we always say, he made us in his image. God tells us in the first book that he is not alone. Then we go to John 1 and it’s about the Word. God is the Word, in the beginning he was the Word and the Word was with God. God knew all along what it would say and he created not only this world that was a void, but Words that even when he no longer is physically with us, we can still grow closer to him.
Through his Word, that he created each of us in their image. What an amazing God we have! I know how easy it is to skip over Genesis 1:26, God wants to make man in our image. I am so thankful for that, Three in One! I pray that throughout today you can be in awe of that and that we have his word to grow closer to him, to trust him, to love him, and to be a mirror of him throughout our day. May you be reminded of that and may it be a reminder to those you encounter.
