REASONING WITH YOUR CREATOR
by G.C. Ogbonna
“Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD, though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Ultimately, the things God created from the first day to the sixth day were created for the benefit of man. The scripture recorded that man was the last of God’s creatures. However, it is clear from every indication that while God was creating other creatures, He had man in His mind. God had the intention for man to rule over all His other creatures even before He created him. Before man was created God summoned the Trinity and said, “---Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”(Gen.1:26).

This breath of God was His nature trans-fused into man. In other words, the nature of holiness and righteousness was imparted into man by God.
