Image of God
You were created in the image of God,
and part of who he is
becomes visible in this world
through who you are.
You are who you are for a purpose
greater than you.
You’ve been given gifts, talents,
and abilities to point the world back to him.
You’ve been equipped to shine
in order for the world to see him better.
You are here for his purpose and pleasure,
for such a time as this.
Today’s Reading: Acts 17:27-28.
His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
