“Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.
They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock,
all the wild animals on the earth,
and the small animals that scurry along the ground.'”
Genesis 1:26 New Living Translation
Running through the middle of Lutherstadt-Wittenberg, Germany are two concrete canals. I don’t know how long these canals have run through the city. They might date back to the days when fortress walls protected Wittenberg, but then again, maybe not.
The water in these canals suddenly appears on the east end of Wittenberg and then disappears on the west end. On its journey through the town it adds both beauty and function to the city. You will note the beauty of the flowers that line this canal as well as the railing which serves as a bike rack for residents.
Since we are created in the image of God and redeemed by the blood of Christ, we add beauty to this world. We are handcrafted in the heart of God. There is no one like us.
There is no one like you. You are an amazing work of God.
And, since we are created in the image of God and redeemed by the blood of Christ we have a special function in this world. We are uniquely equipped to do God’s work at this time in history.
You are uniquely equipped to do God’s work at this time in history.
You are an amazing work of God.
Did you catch it? You are an amazing work of God.
