God made us to in his own likeness and image. This necessarily doesn’t mean he has a face like us. No one has seen God to testify who he is like. Only his begotten son who is in his embrace tells us everything we should know about him. God is like a blazing fire and God is a spirit and those who worship him and want to praise him do so in the spirit.
That means he created us to be holy like him.
So in order to be fit to worship him we have to be holy like him.
This doesn’t mean that we can do it all by ourselves. There is nothing we can do by our own when it comes to the kingdom of God.
Jesus said, “Without me, you cannot do anything.”
We are called to transform our selves not to the likeness of the world, but to the image of his son Jesus Christ. He is humble and kind and always loving.
When God says something he said it because he knows how much trouble that can cause in to our lives
God has nothing to get whether we obey him or not
We are the beneficiary for the fruits of our obedience to him
Do you know families can easily get shattered and useful zeal and ambition for the Lord can easily be wasted? Do you know you may lose everything including your desire to succeed in life? Your desire to serve God, Your desire to be attached to your family, your desire to bond with others, your performance at work, you’re focus in doing things if you are in disobedience especially regarding sexual sin.
If you save yourself for your wife and don’t have sex with another person then that will bring you long life of pleasure and happiness that you would share with her. If you sin against the Lord, you will short yourself of the great glory and joy that you may find by obeying it.
The most addictive power of sexually sin comes with the fact that it has got to do with pleasure that is only for a moment but the consequences are years of agony and gnashing of tears.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
