Every human being is made in the image of God, and thus is infinitely valuable.

Children running on meadow at sunset SBI 300996173Jesus is the most complete image of the fullness of God that we as humans can comprehend. Jesus came to serve us, to die for us, and thereby to restore us to the original relationship with had with God in the beginning.

If we want to follow Jesus, we will need to put aside any sense of our own entitlement or idea that we are somehow more worthy than any other person. (And the converse is true as well. Because we are made in the image of God we are worthy of love and respect too.)

It’s disheartening how often we as humans miss the mark on this. We miss it in our common political life and we miss it in our religious life. But take heart because the disciples and the early followers of the Way missed the mark as well, and Jesus loved them and the Spirit transformed them into something new and wonderful. We have every reason to hope that the same transformation is happening in our lives as well.
