What is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?
Maybe a beautiful sunset with red and orange colours.
Maybe you’ve seen dolphins jumping in the sea.
Maybe the simple beauty of a cluster of grapes hanging from the vine has struck you with awe.
Creation is full of magnificent, breath-taking scenes, yet none of these is made in the image of God. But you are!
“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27).
In all of creation, nothing is more beautiful or valuable than you. We can know we are special because God made us in His image.
Not only are we created in the image of God, but Jesus gave His life for us: “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). God didn’t create us and leave us alone. He offers us forgiveness and life.
If you ever doubt your value, feel worthless or feel you’ve fallen short, remember two things:
1: You are made in the image of God, 2: He loves you so much He took the punishment for your sins through His death.
