… yet crowned with glory!
What makes man – the special creation that he is?
You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering: …
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
Ezekiel 28 13
God created Lucifer to reflect His glory.
Then one day Lucifer decided he wanted to have God’s glory,
… and we know the rest, God threw him out of heaven!
However, God did not make man out of anything special,
… but made man out of something rather common,
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground,
Gen 2 7
YET, what God put into man was special,
You (God) have crowned him (man) with glory and honor.
Ps 8 5
God put His spirit in man, His life into man
so man would express God’s glory and not only reflect it!
… as man lived out what God put inside of man, Himself!
This was not just unique, but a slap in Lucifer’s face,
and that is why satan hates mankind.
There is however a condition to that uniqueness
You have to choose to be what God created you to be!
And, you have to live that image God created you in,
His image, His glory … in you!
