Our Daily Bread 22nd May 2022 Devotional For Sunday: Message Written By  Winn Collier (Our Daily Bread Ministries) || ODB  Daily Reading Now 

TOPIC: Something Deep and Binding

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Genesis 1:26–28

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness,r so that they may rules over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky,t over the livestock and all the wild animals, and overall the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,

in the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.e

KEY VERSE: God created mankind in his own image. – Genesis 1:27

BIBLE IN A YEAR: 1 Chronicles 16–18; John 7:28–53

 ODB TODAY’S INSIGHT: The Latin term imago Dei means “image of God.” Biblically speaking, the lofty notion that humans are created in the likeness of God is rooted in Genesis 1:26: “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and overall the creatures that move along the ground.’ ”

Contextually understood, humans are created by God and are like Him in unique ways that allow them, on His behalf, to “rule over” (to have dominion over) what He’s created. This grand governing assignment includes the capacity to reason critically, to judge wisely, and to create with beauty and utility. These and other aspects of being like God are included in humans being “crowned . . . with glory and honor” (Psalm 8:5).

MESSAGE

Amina, an Iraqi immigrant, and Joseph, an American from birth, attended a political protest on opposite sides. We’ve been taught to believe that those who are separated by ethnicity and politics carry unbridled animosity toward each other. However, when a small mob accosted Joseph, trying to set his shirt on fire, Amina rushed to his defense. “I don’t think we could be any further apart as people,” Joseph told a reporter, “and yet, it was just kinda like this common ‘that’s not OK’ moment.” Something deeper than politics knit Amina and Joseph together.

Though we often have genuine disagreements with one another—substantial differences we often can’t ignore—there are far deeper realities that bind us together. We’re all created by God and bound together in one beloved human family. God has created each of us—regardless of gender, social class, ethnic identity or political persuasion—“in his own image” (Genesis 1:27). Whatever else might be true, God is reflected in both you and me.

Further, He’s given us a shared purpose to “fill” and “rule” God’s world with wisdom and care (v. 28).

Whenever we forget how we’re bound together in God, we do damage to ourselves and others. But whenever we come together in His grace and truth, we participate in His desire to make a good and flourishing world.

REFLECT: Who seems to be completely different from you? What would it be like to spend time with them, sharing what you have in common?

PRAY: God, the way the world is right now, it’s hard to believe that because of You every person shares something deep inside. Help me see this truth.
