Commentary by Tony Reinke
Am I failing at life? Am I succeeding? And why do I exist in the first place?
These questions are huge, we all ask them, and thankfully the Bible helps us with answers in the form of a litmus test.
We are made by God to image him in the world. That’s our purpose. Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
But what exactly does this mean for my life?
Such a simple sentence can put you on a long search in the attempt to wrap your arms around the full implications. It turns out, what it means to be made in God’s image comes with a lot of right answers.
