Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.

There is an important mission that every Born Again Believer in Christ Jesus is sent upon every day by God the Father.

Look at these words that Elohim (God in three Persons) stated in the beginning. "Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness." To me, this means that when Adam sinned, he ruined our chances to display the image and likeness of God the Father and His Son Jesus the Christ.

It is my opinion that the Holy Spirit of God has a big job to do for the Godhead. And everyone who names the Name of Jesus Christ has a big job to obey His Commands to RENEW what Adam ruined by making it impossible for mankind to reflect God's image and likeness.

Salvation at it's core is God likeness renewal period. The word "image" is a copy. You take an original document to a copy machine and make a copy of the original. We become born again to go to the Copy Master Jesus and His Spirit and produce the likeness of the God we are suppose to believe in. Anything less will incur this statement of the Master Owner of our lives....

John 2:23 "Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.
2:24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,
2:25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man." (My thanks to e-Sword for supplying these Scriptures)

Even though these folk believed in Jesus, He knew they would not renew the likeness of the Godhead....Are you? Is that what you are doing on a daily basis? I wouldn't ask you to do what I'm not doing myself. I have in my heart, the great calling of God to renew what Adam ruined, God's image mirrored to the those in my sphere of witness.... Spurgeon, commenting on Colossians 2:6 "As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him." said this...."If a man walks in Christ, then he so acts as Christ would act; for Christ being in him, his hope, his love, his joy, his life, he is the reflex of the image of Jesus; and men say of that man, “He is like his Master; he lives like Jesus Christ.”

This is the call of Jesus today. Read Matthew chapter 5, it's called the beatitudes. Then continue thru chapters 6 & 7. Then go to John Chapter 15 it's one of the greatest chapters in the Bible, a chapter that teaches about our responsibility of renewal.

Thank you my friends. I hope there will be revival & renewal in each of you as it has benefited my spiritual life in many ways. I feel like I'm a real servant of Jesus when I concentrate on renewing the likeness of my Master. God bless you all. :hug

This is precisely why Jesus came down to Earth to bring in a new and living way - whereby the power and strength of the indwelling Holy Spirit would
enable those who comply with the full Gospel (to be born again by water baptism along with baptism in the Holy Spirit) to become new creations -
ambassadors to Christ Jesus and the Gospel.
Hopefully over time our testimony displays the evidence of being born again and:

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,
23 meekness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
24 But those belonging to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Galatians 5:
