Gospel Moments (8): Made in the Image of God (Part Two)

Genesis 1:27-31 ESV
So God created man
in his own image,
in the image of God
he created him;
male and female
he created them.

And God blessed them.

And God said to them,
“Be fruitful and multiply and
fill the earth and subdue it,
and have dominion
over the fish of the sea
and over the birds of the heavens
and over every living thing
that moves on the earth.”

And God said,
“Behold, I have given you
every plant yielding seed that is
on the face of all the earth,
and every tree with seed in its fruit.
You shall have them for food.
And to every beast of the earth
and to every bird of the heavens
and to everything that creeps
on the earth, everything that
has the breath of life,
I have given every
green plant for food.”
And it was so.

And God saw everything
that he had made,
and behold,
it was very good.

Do you see His power
and glory.
Stop and think
about what
you have just read,
and worship.

God made man.

He made them
in His image.
He made them
male and female.

He blessed them.
He commanded them to be
fruitful, to multiply,
to fill the earth
and subdue it.

He gave them
dominion over all
living creatures.

He provided for all.

God Almighty is Lord of
heaven and earth.
He is KING
over every man,
woman, and child.
He is KING over
every king, lord,
monarch, and judge.

Let us bow down and
worship Him.
Let us give Him
the honor He is due.

Psalm 95:6-7
Come, let us bow
down in worship,
let us kneel before
the LORD our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people
of his pasture,
the flock under his care.

He is the one true God.
There are no other gods
before Him.

Direct your thoughts to
contemplate these
familiar verses.
Ask the Lord to help
you hear the powerful
truths they proclaim.

God is both the Author
and the Lord of creation.
He is your Maker.

Graciously and generously
offer Him a sacrifice of praise
and thanksgiving.

Now prayerfully read the
following hymn by Isaac Watts
and close in prayer.

“Let Every Creature Join”
Written by Isaac Watts
The Psalms of David (1719).

Let every creature join
To praise th’eternal God;
Ye heav’nly hosts, the song begin,
And sound His name abroad.

Thou sun with golden beams,
And moon with paler rays;
Ye starry lights, ye twinkling flames,
Shine to your maker’s praise.

He built those worlds above,
And fixed their wondrous frame;
By His command they stand or move,
And ever speak His name.

Ye vapors, when ye rise,
Or fall in showers of snow;
Ye thunders, murmuring
round the skies,
His power and glory show.

Wind, hail, and flashing fire,
Agree to praise the Lord,
When ye in dreadful storms conspire
To execute His word.

By all His works above
His honors be expressed;
But saints that taste His saving love
Should sing His praises best.

Let earth and ocean know
They owe their maker praise;
Praise Him, ye watery worlds below,
And monsters of the seas.

From mountains near the sky,
Let His high praise resound;
From humble shrubs and cedars high,
And vales and fields around.

Ye lions of the wood,
And tamer beasts that graze,
We live upon His daily food,
And He expects your praise.

Ye birds of lofty wing,
On high His praises bear;
Or sit on flowery boughs, and sing
Your maker’s glory there.

Ye creeping ants and worms,
His various wisdom show,
And flies, in all your shining swarms,
Praise Him that dressed you so.

By all the earth-born race
His honors be expressed;
But saints, that know
His heav’nly grace
Should learn to praise Him best.

Monarchs of wide command,
Praise ye th’eternal King;
Judges, adore that sovereign hand
Whence all your honors spring.

Let vigorous youth engage
To sound His praises high:
While growing babes, and withering age,
Their feebler voices try.

United zeal be shown
His wondrous fame to raise:
God is the Lord; His name alone
Deserves our endless praise.

And all pronounce Him blessed;
But saints, that dwell so near His heart,
Should sing His praises best.

Close with a prayer in
your own words.

In Jesus’ Name,
