Genesis 1:27, 31a
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them…God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.”
“…his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness…”
1 Corinthians 15:49
“And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.”
Holy Father, your face is the ultimate pattern for perfection; your Spirit all that is truly good.
Look upon Christ in us and see his perfect features. May others recognize traces of your loveliness and long to be re-created as ‘very good’.
Because of this wondrous transformation we come before you in Jesus’ name, reconciled and restored.
