This Miracle of God's Creation



 Genesis 2:7 ESV

Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

Genesis 1:27 ESV

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

We humans are the creation of God.  Science classifies humans as animals/mammals,  which is true! The miraculous difference from other animals is that we are indeed created "in the image of God. God breathed life into man and gave humans the unique ability to feel emotion, reason, create, and make logical  and moral decisions. Humans also understand the miracle of Jesus Christ and God's gift through His Son. We have cognitive abilities far above the animals that God created and put under the care of man.

I was asked recently to explain   the difference between a human mind and a human brain. Our physical brain was created by and in the image of God and facilitates the innumerable thoughts, emotions and abilities of the mind thereby reflecting  the creative genius  of a perfect God! If you have ever read how the human brain works and read the works of great authors, you can understand this miracle of God's creation.   I think we humans need to stop and realize what the Creator gave us.  Sometimes we get a bit puffed up about who we are and what we can do when we should be thankful to our God. He must shake his head a lot!
