Jesus Is The Image Of God.

“Jesus is conforming you to His image and perfecting His love within you. In Him is your identity, your confidence, your courage, and your strength.” – Unknown (*quote, not Scripture)

Jesus is the image of God Himself. “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Colossians 1:15) Not everyone can see this truth. “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the Gospel that displays the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God.” (2 Corinthians 4:4)

God also created mankind in His own image, so He takes human life very seriously. “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27) “Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made mankind.” (Genesis 9:6)

We are to show kindness towards our fellow man, since we all reflect God. “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Our of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.” (James 3:9,10)
