In this episode we discuss the theological term Imago Dei and it’s impact on us in everyday life. It is both humbling and empowering at the same time. We also share the Gospel and how to grow in Christ once you have become a Christian. This episode features poetry by Cyrus Speaks.
- Imago Dei is Latin for “Image of God”, is a theological term, applied uniquely to humans, which denotes the symbolical relation between God and humanity
- By seeing everyone as image bearers, we can view everyone as equals
- Once we become Christians we have to be intentional about growing in Christ
- Genesis 1:26-27 – “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
- 1 John 5:3 – For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.
- Revelation 1:18 – and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades
- Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- Romans 10:9 – that if – you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
