Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
Genesis 1:26 NIV
In the first chapter of Genesis, there is one interesting thing that happened. God said: “Let us make man in our own image…”
Community is God’s heart and it’s His idea. God the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit creating us out of their very own image and breath which means this community is our very identity.
We are part of a royal family.
Father, Son and the Holy Spirit are in perfect oneness, harmony together which means there are no separations nor division. There is a flow of perfect love, unity between them. And this is God’s desire – His passion to bring Heaven’s community to earth.
We are to reflect this perfect harmony here on earth.
When Jesus was here on earth, He showed us a new way of thinking. As a matter of fact, He created a new way of sharing – a new normal.
Here’s a revelation; I am what the world defines as “introvert”, I enjoy my own company. But, I also come alive when I am amongst people who loves me and has my best interest at heart.
It is important to spend time alone with God, soaking up on His Word but He didn’t intend for us to live in isolation, to be divided by dominations. And this is why we crave and thrive in relationship with others.
The culture of heaven is togetherness, oneness and unity. In the Kingdom of God, there is unity of purpose.
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
1 Corithians 1:10 NIV
REFLECT & PRAY
When I know who I am. I am complete and in no competition with nobody because really truly we are all, in fact, part of one body – Jesus Christ.
