Man was created as a perfect creature that possesses every nature of God, as the bible says in Genesis 1:26 “Let us make man in our own 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 that creepeth upon the earth”.

The image and likeness God was referring to here doesn’t point towards a facial replica of God only, it extends to the complete representation of God.
Likeness means a state of being alike, Similitude and resemblance. It also means to depict, man was created to represent God on earth.

Adam lost the nature and he gave the kingship of the earth to the devil. God has always wanted man to dominate the world, he purposed to send Christ to us that he who believes in him would gain sonship again.

as many as received him to them he gave power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.John 1:12-13

Jesus came to do the work of reconciliation, so that we can have LIFE, in abundance. Jesus is life because through him the world came into being, anyone that must have a new life must have Christ.

The revelation of Christ in us is the confidence that we have about possessing God’s glory.

to whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.Colossians 1:26-27

Jesus Christ came to do the quickening, so that man can be reconstructed from being carnal to being spiritual.

“And so it is written, the first Adam was made a living soul, the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.”1 Corinthians 15:45
“If the spirit of him that raise Christ from dead dwells in you, he that raise Christ from dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his spirit that dwelleth in you.”Romans 8:11
Jesus Christ came to do the quickening, so that man can be reconstructed from being carnal to being spiritual.

Newness was brought to man by the grace of God via Jesus. Jesus Christ is God made flesh, so that man can feel the presence of God that was rejected in the Garden of Eden, the lost fellowship was reconstructed by Jesus Christ.

“that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens, from the Commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”Ephesians 2:12-13

Be subjected to a new life through Christ today and be free from the shackles of sin.

Shalom
