Sermon: In the Image of God

Being created in the image and likeness of God doesn’t mean physical resemblance between God and us. Rather, it means divine attributes were instilled in us such as conscience, reflection, love, creativity, and free will. It also means that God alone determines the worth of human soul. For each individual with divine attributes, God has a plan and purpose. No one is an accident.

God claims that our body belongs to Him. For the following three reasons: He created us. He sustains us. He bought us for a price. We are not the owner of our body but the stewards who are called to take good care of the body. We are to use our heart, tongue, eyes, and hands to the glory of God.

Today Pastor Choi talks about those whom Jesus calls “Among the Thorns” (part 3 of 4 on the Parable of the Sower series).

It is the heart condition where God’s Word is sown, yet due to other “Thorns” such as worries, the deceitfulness of riches, and sensual and self-indulgent pleasures, God’s Word is never brought to maturity.
