I welcome you to this glorious month in Jesus’ name! It is a month of liftings and testimonies, yours shall never be denied! This month, I shall be teaching on the topic: You ARE CREATED FROM GOD’S LOVE.
We are all uniquely created. God specially made you to be different from any other person. You are created in His likeness and image, with every organ specially crafted to fit you perfectly; that is why you classified as wonderfully and fearfully made.
God excels in varieties. Thus, no two persons are exactly alike; not even identical twins. You are unique in your make-up. An understanding of this will help you be a greater blessing to others.
You are not an after-thought of God’s creation. So, don’t feel inferior to anyone. God has a purpose for creating you the gender you are and making you the person you are!
The Bible says: Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not (1 John 3:1).
From the above Scripture, it is evident that the purpose behind God’s creation is to receive love. The Scripture tells us that God is love (I John 4:8, 16). It means that God doesn’t just give love, He doesn’t just show love, He is love personified. He desires to share His love with you, because love is His essential quality.
When God said: Let us make man in our image, in our likeness (Genesis 1:26), He was saying, in essence, “Let us make someone to love, and call that creature, ‘man’.” God wanted you to be the object of His love. He made you in His own image and likeness.
Therefore, when God made you, He drew you out of Himself, so that you will be just like Him. You are the only being of God’s creation that is like Him. That is to say, you are so unique.
You are a spirit and spirits have no gender. The Bible never talks about a male and female spirit; so God created the spirit-man without gender. God refers to male and female as ‘man’. God took the spirit of man and placed him in two physical forms, and He called them male and female (Genesis 1:27).
Therefore, God deals with the man inside us because God is a spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). He gave the spirit (man) dominion over a physical earth, He gave him a physical body to live, to function in the world and rule over it (Genesis 2:7).
Moreover, in Genesis 2:7-17, it is clearly stated that, at first, only the spirit in the male gender is ruling in the Garden. When God created the male, He could still give and receive love through His Spirit. What then motivated Him to make the female?
God’s Word says: And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him (Genesis 2:18). That is, even though the male gender had communion with God, the male gender still needed love. Because the man now had a physical body, he also needed someone with whom to share human and physical love.
So, from creation, we see that God decidedly made the woman as a complement of the man. He made her to make a difference in the life of Adam; He created her to spice up her world. I cannot imagine how the world would look like without women.
God told Adam, “You have the animals, but they aren’t like you.” Animals were created for man’s enjoyment, and although they can give some comfort, they cannot truly fulfill a person’s need for love (Genesis 2:19-20). Adam went about his assignment, but God was busy looking for what was missing in his life. So, He put Adam to sleep and by the time he woke up, lo and behold he found a woman by his side.
You are next in line for a surprise package from heaven this month in Jesus’ name. To fully understand God’s perfect reason for your creation, you need to be born again.
This means accepting Jesus as Lord and personal Saviour of your life. If you have not done that or might have withdrawn from following Him at one point, you should say this prayer in faith: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary.
