Whose image are you made in?
“God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” -Genesis 1:27
I’ve seen a lot of people lately making themselves in Peyton Manning and Reggie Bush‘s images - or at least wearing their jerseys. There are also a bunch of people making themselves in the image of a “Tea Party,” aside from those making themselves into the image of President Obama or Rush Limbaugh. One of the guys at work chafes every day that he must make himself into the image of an office professional and wear khakis and a shirt, rather than being the image of Mark Martin, his favorite NASCAR driver. Personally, I just put on my boots and belt buckle and make myself into the image of a cowboy.
1 John 2:6 says that we should do as Jesus did - basically be His image. Luke 6:40 tells us that when we’re fully trained, we’ll be there. My question is do I really have that as my goal? Whose image am I making myself in?
