Genesis 1:26 ” Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness…’ “

Our purpose as Christians is to be the visible representation of the invisible God to others. Paul in II Corinthians 5:20 summed it up like this, “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors…” But when we allow our selfish desires to take over, our purpose gets confused and we end up trying to make a name for ourselves, not God. Many times we’ll aspire to be like some fellow Christian we admire rather than striving to be Christ-like. And what then happens is we end up following the pattern of man rather than the design of God. So ask yourself this today, What kind of example am I displaying to others? Is it me they see, or the Lord? Am I representing Him in a positive light, or not? Remember, we are to be the visible representation of the invisible God for the world to see. And for some, you could be the only example.
