The last few blogs exposed some of the moral conditions that we face today. This evokes much sympathy and compassion in my heart for the Church around the world and the violent uprising against the principles God calls us to stand true to. Our world is anything but friendly toward those who love God, His Word, and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
How then can we live for God in these conditions? How are we to remain faithful when the opposition seems bent on shutting us down, silencing our witness, and questioning our work of spreading the gospel? Are we to expect a path that is less difficult and less painful than what Jesus experienced when He was here? I want to make a genuine attempt at answering these questions which many are asking today.
We must begin to answer questions like this by going back to the original plan, or what I like to call, the original blueprint. It’s that piece of paper where the architect has specifically set out his design, measurements and limits, relationships and connections that come together to express what is in his mind.
“Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living creature [soul]” (Genesis 1:26; 2:7). Nothing else on all creation was given the imprint of God’s image and likeness. Out of all the things in creation, man was chosen to be the sole representative of God for the rest of creation.
While sin marred that image and hid the glory of the Creator, God had already planned through the mystery of His will that this glory, beauty and representation would be restored so we could once against reflect His original design. Are you living by God’s original blueprint; His image in your life?
