Man – A divine creation

This morning’s devotion is focusing on the book of Beginnings. Genesis is about the beginning of the universe, the creation of the heavens and the earth. All things were created by God. Humanity is the pinnacle creative work of a Sovereign God.

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27  So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:26-27 ESV)

There is no greater simple truth than this: we are the posterity of Adam and Eve, and through them, we have the understanding that a Sovereign God created after His own image and after His own likeness. Perfectly innocent and with harmonious fellowship with God. Both, men and women, have a beginning. We did not merely evolve, we were created, fashioned and designed by a God who desires to have a meaningful and intimate relationship with each one of us.
