Image of God

Also published in the December 2010 issue of Faithlink, the magazine of Faith Methodist Church

Made in the image of God
Chosen to rule all the animals
Yet chose to listen to one
And became a slave!

Made in the image of God
Both male and female
Made to complement one another
Now competing against one another!

Made in the image of God
To provide companionship for one another
Yet chose to be alone
Isolated from one another

Made in the image of God
To be His friends
Yet desire to be gods
And became His enemies

Made in the image of God
Precious in His eyes
Yet man chose to kill and curse
Men made in the image of God

Made in the image of God
Marred and tainted
But still precious in His eyes.

Made in the likeness of man
He came to restore the image of God in man
Chosen to rule
Yet chose to be a servant.
