I’ve said it before, and you’ll probably hear me say it a million more times, but talking about what it means to be made in the image of God is one of my very favorite things to do. So getting the opportunity to talk with Karen Hodge about it over on the enCourage podcast this morning was a huge treat for me. If you’ve ever felt like you don’t measure up as a Christian woman, or if you struggle with the idea that the Christian life is just doing more and trying harder, than this message is for you.
God didn’t create us to strive and to work and to toil to do all the things we think we have to do as women of God. Instead, his purpose and plan for us is one of freedom; based not on what we do, but on who he is. We are his image bearers which means we are more loved, more called, and more free than we may have ever realized.
