YOU WERE MADE TO BE LIKE GOD
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Friday, 28th July, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
_“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:”
🔹 🔹 🔹
In God’s original design, man was made in His image (look and response) and likeness (type). In other words, man was made to be like God. That design was however altered when the first man sinned. He lost both qualities and we noticed that after Adam’s sin, his children took up his own likeness, not that of God (Gen. 5:3). Yet the desire of God was that man would be His type, have His look and also His response. This is the reason God gave us His son Jesus to bring us salvation.
Being born again is what restores a man to the likeness of God because it gives him God’s righteousness. It is what qualifies the believer to be called a child of God, having the nature of God and restored in dominion over all that was created. (Gen 1:28) Glory to God!
Therefore, step out today with the consciousness that being born again, you are a God-type, having access to use the power of God. You were made to be like Him, so let this thought guide your words, actions and response as you go about your business or assignment today.

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Palestine 🇵🇸…
Majority are Muslims. Estimates are that 70% of Gaza lives in deep poverty and 80% are dependent upon external aid. Widespread unemployment and Israel’s imposition of economic controls prevent the majority from working their way out of poverty.
🙏🏼We are praying that help will come to the nation from everywhere around the world.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Lord, help me to act and live just as you do in Jesus name.
