Created in God's Image, Born in Adam's Image

Created in God's Image (Gen.1:27), Born in Adam's Image (Gen.5:3)
In whose image are you born?

Don't answer too quickly.....

You are CREATED in God's image (Genesis 1:27).

But since the Fall, man has been BORN in Adam's image:
"When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image" Genesis 5:3

Adam's sin distorted God's image in mankind, making us favor sin over righteousness.

Proof of this comes in Genesis 6 when God had to send the Flood so that evil did not overtake all of mankind.

"The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.  The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled." Genesis 6:5-6

It breaks my heart to know how our sins grieve God. It gives me joy unspeakable to receive Christ's grace, forgiveness and renewal.  Do you know that joy unspeakable? It's available to all who believe!
