“And God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground. ‘So God created man in his own image. In the image of God, he created them; male and female he created them.” – Genesis 1:26-27
To be made in God’s image means we are made in His likeness which is His nature and personality. So naturally, we are expected to reflect His traits and most especially, His love. Many people view love as a distant obligation or as a sudden frenzy of emotions, or even as an unattainable standard but the truth is: love is not only within your grasp, it is around you too.
You were created with the capacity to love to the fullest degree because you were made to be exactly like God, the One who loves unconditionally. Go out and love just as God does.
Have a restful weekend.
Confession: I have the love of God because I am made in His image. I walk in the full understanding and manifestation of His love.
