In the beginning, God created human beings, male and female, in His image and thus gave them purpose. He created them to reflect His glory--to relate, work, rest, and rule. And this was very good until the first sin shattered the image of God. The image is not lost, but it is certainly dimmed. God provided Jesus Christ to restore the image of God in humanity. Through repentance and faith in the perfect work of Jesus, day by day we are being renewed and restored until once again the image of God shines forth and we reflect the glory of our Maker.
