It is that time again! Many of us have made New Year’s resolutions that we hope will improve our lives, our current situation or, at least, our future prospects.
John 8:29 is often cited to highlight Jesus’ humble obedience to the Father.
In Colossians 1:15, Paul describes Jesus as the image of the invisible God. The New Testament uses the Greek term “eikon” which means image. It is from this word we get the English word icon, which can refer to a picture or portrait.
The sovereign God of the universe bestowed on man the highest possible honor: He created man in His own image and likeness. God, referring to His own triune nature, stated: “Let us create man in “Our” image and likeness.” One way to interpret this statement is to view man also as a “triune being”, composed of body, soul and spirit.
