In my first book, “I Am, the Great Creator God”, I wrote a lot about the designs (butterflies, flowers, ducks, etc.) and the wonderment of God’s creation. If God cares so much for each of His creatures, down to an insect…the beautiful butterfly…to care about the littlest details and coloring of a wing; then how much more will God care about you? We are all created in the image of God; look closely at this text from Genesis:
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.
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:26-28 ESV) [underlines added]
Please take note that not only did the Triune God create you, male and female, in His image, but He put you in charge of every living breathing thing on the planet! That is an awesome reasonability! Do you think God would put you in charge of His whole creation if He didn’t think you were worthy of such a task?
You were individually and wonderfully made, lovingly crafted by the supreme power of the Universe; the same Omnipotent God that designed and crafted to smallest details of a butterfly’s wing. A butterfly that is here one day and gone shortly thereafter; but you are in charge of all of creation…how much more important is that? So don’t you think for one moment that God doesn’t love you; you were created in His likeness and given a big job to do.
A big job to do? Especially as you become connected to the “Jesus Trunk” and become more than just His wonderful creation, as you become a joint-heir to the very Kingdom of God. God loves you! You have no excuse to reject His invitation other than your own decision to do so…you can’t use the excuse that you are a sinful person. We are all sinners, but Jesus paid the price for our sin on the cross and we are forgiven (John 3:16). This is God’s grace! You can not hate God for anything you chose to blame on Him; He didn’t do it. You can not reject God because you didn’t get something; you don’t have the whole story. God sent His only eternal Son, that created all that is in the beginning (John 1:1-3), to pay the price for what you did; you can not hate a God like that.
