Relationship: The reason you were made

Genesis 1:26 says, “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.'”

But why did God create us in His image? “…so we could have relationship,” answered Miles in his recent Sunday message.

In the same way that couples procreate to have relationship with their children, “God made you and I so we could have relationship.”

Holding a black leather glove, Miles explained that it was made in the image of a hand so that a hand could fit inside it and have relationship with it. “If this glove did not have a hand in it, it could not do anything,” he explained. “God made you and I in His image so that He could live inside of us and have relationship.”

CHALLENGE: Identify one thing that is keeping you from experiencing greater or deeper relationship with God. Decide to cut it out, eliminating the hindrance on your relationship with God. Because your relationship with God is the reason for your existence, it should also be the number one priority of your existence.
