A security check we all need and have in Christ – no, we are not a robot!
The problem of security for the site has been solved by a simple CAPTCHA where site members will check a box affirming that they are human and not a robot. So what is the significance of that? Only this – we are fully living creatures. We are created in the image of God!
Because we are created in the image of God, we have God’s likeness, God’s stamp, God’s seal of completion. I can imagine that God looks down on us and says “Yep. I made that. Good job!” In Gen. 1:31 it says that when God had finished with creation, He “looked down on all He had made, and indeed it was very good.” Also, in Eph. 2:10 it says “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
You see, not only are we created in the image of God, and He is very pleased with His handiwork (cause God don’t make no junk), we are also bought by the blood of Jesus, created in Him, and made with a purpose and a plan – to do good works, which He has already mapped out ahead of time!
Are we a robot? Absolutely not! We are a blood bought, set apart, uniquely created child of the Most High God, and we are most secure in Christ, who is at work in us and through us according to Phil. 2:13 – “for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
And so, Dear Reader, the next time you check that little box to get into the site, remember who you are, and Whose you are – a uniquely created work of art by the creator of the universe! You are loved, honored, cherished, and set apart by Almighty God, and His son, Jesus Christ.
