Copy of God

When you look in a mirror, what do you expect to see? You expect to see yourself. What if you looked in a mirror and you did not see yourself? Maybe you would panic! Or you might look in another mirror.
Our Bible Reading tells us, “So God made people in his own image. God made people as a copy of himself. God made them male and female” (verse 27). When God made Adam, He looked at him. What did God see? He saw that Adam was a copy of Himself.
But then Adam sinned. Adam was not a copy of God anymore. So God made a way for Adam and all other people to have their sins forgiven. God sent Jesus to earth to die on the cross. God accepted Jesus’ death as the punishment for all sin. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are like God again.
When God looks at you, what does He see? Does He see sin? Or does God see a person who is a copy of Himself?
