As He is…

                                              … so are we in this world!

Have you ever wondered why God said …
   “It is not good that man should be alone;”
      Gen 2:18

There may seem to be many reasons why the Bible says that,
… but if you consider that God made man in His image,
it must have everything to do with who God Himself is …

The Bible also tells us that …
      He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
      1 John 4:8

And, for love to be real, it must be expressed! (John 3:16)

God’s plan has always been that we, mankind, be just like Him,
and as He was about to give Himself for us, Jesus prayed…

      And the glory which You gave Me I have given them,
      that they may be one just as We are one:
      I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one,
      and that the world may know that You have sent Me,
      and have loved them as You have loved Me.
      John 17:22-23

Just as God has never been alone, and has always expressed love,
… God created us to be exactly the same, expressing love.
Therefore God said… it is not good that man should be alone,
… because man in His image was created to be just like Him
a lover, who needs to express what is in him, LOVE!

      Love has been perfected among us in this:
      that we may have boldness in the day of judgment;
      because as He is, so are we in this world.
      1 John 4:17
