When Being God Just Wasn’t Enough


He had everything that a God could possibly want.  But everything was consumed by the darkness, so He spoke light into existence and systematically set up the first day and night.  Over the next few days, He created the sky, the dry land and seas; vegetation and the trees; the Sun, moon, and stars; the sea creatures, birds, and land dwelling wildlife.  Then, as the Lord looked over everything that He had created, He saw that it was good.

But it wasn’t enough.  God, the Creator, desired to create something, someone, like Himself, something unique, someone who could oversee His creation and also relate to Him personally.  So, He created man in His own image, fully equipped with His own attributes:  reason, intellect, emotion, free will, and responsibility.  Then, He looked at man and saw that it was very good.

We were created in the image of God.  We are the epitome of His creation.

And that is very good.
