FOUR FEATURES GOD MADE MAN IN HIS IMAGE:

1A    LET
US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE 1:27, 5:1

            The  truest part of man  cannot be reduced to any chemical formula.

            He
is transcendent, and an eternal being.

Ecclesiastes 3:11  interesting verse. You can take away our body
and we will live forever.

PERSONHOOD:      The image of God indicates
attributes.  Personhood. 

            Man
is the only creature in existence in the time/space world that has language.

The
ethical essence of man’s  ontological
(theory of being.)



Capacity for moral
behavior

Capability to be holy
and righteous

Ability to be
sanctified

Ability to obey God

Ability to receive divine and eternal salvation



2A    MAN
IS KING OF THE EARTH.

            Gen.
1:26-28 “let him rule.”  God but man as  sovereign over the whole creation.

            1          Gen 2:19 He classify creation. 

            2          Gen
2:15  To cultivate the garden of Eden and
keep it. ADAM WAS GIVEN RESPONSIBILITY

                        1          Gen 2:8 

                                    1          The Garden of Eden was not in Iraq

                                    2          The Garden was destroyed by the global
Flood.

                        2          To make sure everything had its
appropriate care.   Which we don’t know what?

            3          Genesis 2:16 But from the tree of
knowledge of good and evil.

1          Man’s responsibility was to learn
about His creation and glorify God by the wonder of what he saw and then to
classify the creation and the somehow to shape the creation so that it was an
honor to its creator in every way.

2          We’re still stewards of His creation.
But while I’m here, I want God to be able to be on display

 

3A    “BE
FRUITUFL AND MULTIPLE AND FILL ALL THE EARTH.” 1:28

1                   
So God made male and female. That was
God’s design for marriage and procreation.

2                   
The creation of woman.   

3                   
Male is placed first and this is
necessary I creation.

4                   
Productiveness

4A    HE
WAS CREATED AS THE RECIPIENT OF ENJOYMENT

            God
just wanted somebody He could bless. How did He bless them?

1                   
With authority

2                   
With a divine image, eternal being

3                   
With the ability to have affiliation

4                   
With personhood.

5                   
With the ability to know His creation.

6                   
With the competence to know Him as well
as to know each other.

7                   
With the ability to replicate themselves
and fill the earth with others made in the image of God
