God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image,
after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea,
the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth,
and over everything that creeps upon the earth. (Genesis 1:26 Amplified Bible)
In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion
and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day
of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him],
because as He is, so are we in this world. (1 John 4:17 Amplifies Bible)
My image is a reflection or picture of me.
Likewise God's image is also the reflection or picture of God!
If man was made in God's image, then man is a reflection or picture of God!
We are made to look like God...to resemble God!
We are made to resemble Christ!
