Scripture: Genesis 1:26–1:28

Who Am I? Made in God’s Image
Genesis 1:26–28
February 14, 2016

Introduction:

I. What is meant by the “image of God?”

     A. Royal dominion. Genesis 1:26–28; Psalm 8:5–8

     B. Judicial authority. Genesis 3:22; 1 Kings 3:9, 28; 1 Corinthians 6:3

     C. Ethical righteousness. Ephesians 4:24; Hebrews 5:14

II. Everyone is privileged with the image of God. Genesis 1:26

III. The image of God has been defaced but not lost. Genesis 9:6

IV. In Christ, the image of God is being restored. Romans 8:29; 2 Corinthians 3:18

Questions for Reflection:

  • How is human dignity and confidence connected to the image of God?
  • How has the fall of man into sin defaced and inverted the image of God?
  • How is the image of God restored within God’s people?
