Do we honestly take Jesus at his word when he says “I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you” (John 14:20)? Do we honestly believe we are made in His image as stated in Genesis 1:26? Satan loves to cast doubt in our minds with regards to these two foundational truths.
Satan tempted Eve by implying that Adam and Eve are not ALREADY like God—as God Himself stated in the ﬁrst chapter of Genesis. Satan said to Eve, “You will not die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God.” In reality he is planting a seed of doubt. There is a subtle temptation hidden within the temptation to eat the fruit; it is a temptation not to believe that we were created in the image and likeness of God.
Jesus is the New Adam, and he experienced the same temptation that Adam and Eve did. Thankfully, through His example, The Fall did not happen again. Jesus passed the test.
Consider this, the Latin phrase for Salvation is salus, which means health, safety, well-being. Health, means alignment with God, and ultimately union with God. Health means to walk and think and speak and create in alignment with Him. This is possible as we are made in His likeness. Let today be the day that you remove all doubt, and realign your heart with Him. Let the healing and resurrecting begin in your life today!
