The Bible tells us that we are made in God’s image (Genesis 9:6) and that we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for the good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10). We are also taught that in Him, we live and move and have our being, for we are His offspring. (Acts 17:28)
Having read the above Scriptures, what is the spiritual implication on us? In order to answer that, let us take a look at our physical body and study it in parallel to the scriptures. But before that, note that there is one commonality in all the above 3 verses… They all point us to the fact that life is meaningless without God – our source of life!!!
We were all created in His image for His purpose…
Now let us examine our physical body…
1) We are given a heart –
God made us in His own image to fellowship with Him and to have communion with Him. Because God created us, we all have a natural void in our heart that can only be filled and satisfied by the One who created it. We are to open it and allow Him to come in to fill us, to have fellowship with Him, to worship Him, to love Him…
2) We are given eyes –
We are given eyes to see the things which God have created, we all have spiritual eyes to see the works of God in our lives. Open up your eyes to see what God is doing!
3) We are given a nose
We have nose to breathe oxygen to keep us alive! Without it, we cannot survive. If our nose are blocked, we cannot breathe properly. God gave us life to enjoy the things we have, appreciate them before it is taken away from you!
4) We are given mouths –
We have a mouth…. What for? If we cannot see, or feel, or smell, we have mouth to use to open and ask God for it. Ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you. (Matthew 7:7) We use our mouth to sing His praise and declare God’s goodness, to speak blessings on one other.
5) We are given ears –
We all have ears. After we have opened our mouths to ask for something, open our ears to hear what He has to say to us… Listen to the Spirit’s prompting!
6) We are given legs and hands –
What do we do after listening to God’s voice? We need to act on it. Use our legs to walk in them, and use our hands to do what needs to be done.
7) We are given brains –
Finally, last but not least, we all are given brains. God did not make us into mindless robots. We are given brains to process, think, study and than finally choose and decide what we want to do with all we have been given.
We all have a purpose and it begins and ends with Christ!
God bless you!
Serving with you in His Kingdom with love;
