And that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. (Ephesians 4:23, 24 NASB)
I know how you like to go outside at night and gaze up at the stars; how the mountains take your breath away; and how the sun setting over the ocean thrills your heart. It’s wonderful to look at the universe and see God’s beauty. But now consider a much more precious design than all of these things: You!
Not only are you God’s most prized creation, but God had you in mind all along while He was forming the universe. God made you in His image so we could have a relationship with each other. God formed your mind so you could think; God gave you words so you could speak; and God gave you a heart so you could dream. You are His own, the one that He loves so much and of whom He is so proud.
