What does it mean to be “image bearers” of God? In the ancient world, the word image often referred to handcrafted statues of wood or stone that represented the features and power of mythological gods. In the Bible, it says that God made men and women as His “image bearers.” Theologians have debated the true meaning of those words. Do we physically look like God or are we misunderstanding the context?
The answer is simple, we bear His image in likeness. We are meant to reflect Him to the world. How should that profound truth impact the way we live?
