God created human beings in His very image & empowered them with His Holy Spirit so that they would live in partnership & covenant with him, reflecting out His light, love & grace through their living. Reflecting God’s image & light is the Divine purpose of human existence.
The Bible tells us that from the very beginning of creation God dearly loved all the human beings that He created in His image & called them His Beloved children. Beloved children of God is who we are. Being Beloved children of God is our identity, the core of our existence.
Our physical, mental, & spiritual health depends on staying grounded in our true unchanging identity. Our true identity as a Beloved child of God is anchored beyond all earthly challenges & brings our body, mind, & spirit into balance & harmony which enables us to experience whole healing as we witness for God.
This is a season of growth. As we reflect on God our Creator’s creation & new life, we can’t help but be both overwhelmed & humbled at the amazing wonder of the gifts & graces of God’s creative & redemptive hand, each of which contains & thus reflects the very heart of God.
The first commandment God gave to humankind, was to take care of all His creation. That is our calling, that is our purpose, to glorify God through our living, protecting God’s awesome creation, which of course includes loving, helping, & spiritually feeding one another.
