“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” Genesis 1:26
John Calvin said, “We cannot clearly and properly know God unless the knowledge of ourselves be added.” Because humanity was created in the image of God, we need to understand what that means, and this understanding will in turn fuel our knowledge of God Himself.
A mentor of mine asked me, along with the other men he invests in, to build and define our understanding of what it means for humanity to be made in the image of God. In this series, I am sharing some of the work I’ve done to this point, as an understanding of this topic is vital to our spiritual growth.
I hope you find these posts beneficial in your own study and understanding of this important subject.
