Who are we exactly? Why are we there in the world? It’s a question that fills the minds of many people. Too often we only think about our lack and limitation, difficulties make us forget about the essence of our existence on this earth, and who we are as God planned. When we are worry about the future, do not know what we should to do, we are too easily swayed in life. So that questions will fill our minds.
The Bible clearly says that man is a special creation. At one time David seemed to be staring at the sky at night is filled with the stars. David said: “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”(Psalm 8:3-4,NIV). Compared to the beauty of the sky full of stars and moonlight, what is a man? David continued “You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.” (Psalm 8:5,NIV)
The beauty and perfection of the universe was created immeasurably, but still human as God’s creation is different, especially compared to other creations. We are crowned with glory and honor, made like God, have the image of God in us. We are uniquely formed from the dust of the ground directly from His hand and breathed life into us.
Peter said: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9,NIV). We were created with a very special and privileged. But from this verse remember that we have a duty to declare the glory of God in the world anyway. Being the messenger His magnitude deeds. Being children of light that represent the good name of our Father, the King of kings, we are selected as a royal priesthood, our life was supposed to reflect the principles of the kingdom and portray the image of the King.
Have we really understand and realize that our identity as a special creation in God’s likeness? We are the creation with crown of the glory.
