Man is created in the image of God. We could say on that basis that God must be very ugly! But if man is indeed made in God’s image, he has done a bad job of maintaining the paintwork and eliminating the wood rot.
What a wonderful thing to contemplate! We are meant to be in his image, like him. WHAT WENT WRONG?
If being in his image is the natural normal situation, then we better get to work and clean up our act! Knowing that Jesus has restored all things, albeit only seen by faith, we should have confidence to assume the position of those of his image, and to remove our thinking from anything that wants to tell us otherwise.
