Today’s Verse

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis 1:26

Sunday, November 27

God created you in His image so that you would have the capacity to get to know Him and talk to Him. Cows cannot do that. Dogs cannot do that. Chickens cannot do that. Only human beings are made in God’s image with the capacity to pray and hear God speak and comprehend Him.  

Jesus Christ was sent to the Earth to be the bridge so you could get to know God here on this Earth and then you could go be with Him in Heaven forever if you put your trust in Him.  

How do you rate yourself in the most important thing in life? Do you know God? How well do you know God? Do you really know Him? One day you are going to stand before Jesus Christ who gave His life for you on the cross, and God the Father is not going to ask you any questions about your career. 

When you stand before God, He is not going to ask about your bank account. He is not going to ask how many sports trophies you won. He is not going to ask how many friends you were popular with. He is not going to ask if you stayed with the company and got the gold watch at the end.  

God is going to ask, “What did you do with My son, Jesus Christ, that I sent to Earth to die on a cross for you so you could be forgiven, so that you, an unholy person, could be with Me, a Holy God. What did you do with Jesus?”  Will you be able to say, “I accepted Him into my life.  And I took the time to get to know my God.”
