The Image of God


By Ric Ergenbright

Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.

ISBN: 0-8423-3984-1


Chapter One

If you sell anything to your neighbor or buy from your neighbor's hand, you shall not appress one another. Leviticus 25:14

Because the majority of the earth's people do not own a refrigerator, it is necessary for them to shop everyday. The markets they go to are usually out of doors, and are made up of colorful stands or stalls where local vendors sell what they grow, make, or raise themselves. But more than this, it is the customary gathering place of the community, where friends are met, news is shared, and gossip is exchanged. In short, it is the heart of the neighborhood, where something of interest is always to be found, and smiles are easy to come by. For all these reasons, it the first place that any traveler should visit when arriving at a new destination.

Rest & Enjoyment

On the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested ... God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made Genesis 2:2-3

In six days God made the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. He then rested on the seventh day and was refreshed, not because He needed rest but because He was setting a pattern for Adam and Eve. For six days they would glorify the earth through their learning, labor, art, architecture and trade, imaging God's work. Then they would rest from all their work on the seventh day, the Sabbath day, and this rest would refresh them.

But Adam and Eve's first Sabbath day was actually their first full day in the world, since they were God's last creation on the sixth day. They had not worked far any of the things they were enjoying-life, food, rest, God's love and favor, the privilege of ruling far Him. Everything was a gift. What could they give Him in response since He needed nothing and had given them all they had? Only their heartfelt thanks and praise. The next Sabbath they could offer the works of their hands, but even then they would simply be giving back to Him what He had first given them. By resting on the Sabbath, and giving thanks, they would be refreshed by remembering who God was and who they were as children and servants of the God who continually served and cared for them.

True Sabbath rest would enable them to rule as God intended. It would inspire them to work with all their might, knowing it was God whom they served, but would also keep them from being consumed by their work, since God did not need it. They were free to enjoy the fruit of their hands-the wine, the bread, and the oil-and to enjoy the Creation, delighting in the oceans, fields, mountains, and skies that God had made. By frolicking and delighting in the world, they would image God, who had rejoiced (literally played) as He created it (Proverbs 8:30-31). With refreshed and rested hearts, they would transform the earth with the joy of heaven.
