The Good Seed - Tuesday, August 22, 2017
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 1:27

"I don't believe in a God who delivered such a bad product," someone told me. - "But God didn't deliver a bad product! At the end of His work of creation, He could actually say that everything was good (Genesis 1:31). Man rebelled against God. That is what brought all the badness into the world."
The man was not satisfied with this answer and went on: "What kind of a God creates people who can sin? He slipped up there!"
"God created man in His own image and likeness; that means that man became God's representative on earth. It was a position of the greatest responsibility in which he not only could but had to obey, for he was a creature and not God. That meant life and joy for him. However, in virtue of his responsibility, he could also disobey, and that led to death, judgment and trouble. God did not make man like a washing machine: turn the knob to the right temperature, switch on, and the machine goes according to the programme set. God didnt want people to serve Him automatically or under compulsion."
"I still find it strange," the man objected. - "I must admit that I don't fully understand it. For that I should have to be God. But I do know one thing: that God did not leave rebellious, fallen man to his fate. He sent Christ, His Son, to earth, And I know that he died for me on the cross of Calvary. Through faith in Him, I have been saved. And the same salvation is there for you to take hold of."
Today's reading: 1 Kings 20:22-43
