Creation: Man created in the image of God

Creation: Man created in the image of God (Genesis 1 -2 )

After a dramatic display of power in creating the heavens and the earth, God creates man.  Adam and Eve are created in the image of God, in perfect fellowship and harmony with Him.  Living in an idyllic setting in the Garden of Eden, they are individuals of beauty and high intelligence.  The ‘image’ is not a physical likeness, but a personal and spiritual likeness.  Man has intellect, emotion, and will.  He has a moral sense of right and wrong.  He is a creative being.  These are some characteristics of God that are shared by man, and in this sense, man is created in the image of God.
