Professing to be wise, they became fools,
but, there is more…
and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
They exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God…
We are made in the image of God.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Man exchanges this image for corruptible man…and birds, etc.
Rather than ruling in dominion over creation as God designed, man began to worship creation.
He began to pervert the order of the Lord.
Because of this, God did something.
How do we know?
The first Word of the next verse…
True Believers have had their image renewed, restored…
Live in the image of God.
