In His image, according to His likeness

Being a Christian means being a human being - as Christ became a human being.

The race we belong to is human. God created us --

"Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;" (Genesis 1:26a)

"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (Genesis 2:7)

In Our image
According to Our likeness

Son of God
as us --
created by
Him and His Father God
Their image,
according to Their likeness.

Son of God
the culmination
of us all
took our place
showing us
how to live
how to die
in Him,
and according to Him,
Lord Jesus Christ.

It is not
not emotions
not price tags
not traditions, not customs
These do not make a "human being."

We became
through God

How we
what we become
is dependent on
on who we perceive
our maker, our creator.

Is it
the Word of God
is it
the word of me

Do we share,
Do we participate
in the sufferings
of our Lord Jesus,
the bearer of new life
and unending love,
in the life of this world,
a society of human beings
living in hopelessness ...

reaching, seeking ...
Are we there? Like Jesus,
in His image,
according to His likeness?
