In the Image of God

For more than a year I have been praying about producing a short video on what may be the most remarkable and incomprehensible wonder in all of creation – an act of God described in the first chapter of Genesis: And God said, “Let us make man in our image after our likeness.” So God created man in his own image … male and female he created them.

I’ve read those words hundreds of times, but I have seldom stopped to consider their real meaning. Think about it.  Somehow, some way, every human being who has ever taken a breath of air or felt a heartbeat resembles the Creator of the universe. That means that each of the almost 8 billion people who inhabit Earth (including you and me) are more than molecules, cells, muscles, and bones … because we carry within us a spark of divinity.

The implications of all of this are staggering. Just imagine a world where every human being recognized and acted like every other human being was truly created in the image of God.  Then picture a planet where we viewed each other as God does: creations of supreme dignity and worth. That would truly be a glimpse of heaven.

During the production of all of our films we pray for God’s leading. We want our efforts to effectively illustrate a small facet of the Lord’s glory and grace. That has certainly been the case these past few weeks as we’ve worked on IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.  While we continue to endure these days of global uncertainty, Jerry and I believe that this is a message the entire world needs to see and hear. If you agree, please share it with your family, friends, and social media contacts.

Thank you for making this video possible. Your financial support and prayers are incredible blessings to all of us at Illustra Media, especially during these challenging times.
