What Does It Mean To Be Human?

Gender and Our Relationship To God: Genesis 1

The first in a series of 3 sermons on the theology of our sexuality. Here are a few quotes to help you reflect and grow. May God use our humanity to bring him glory.

"To be human means to be created in the image of God. Unlike every other creature, man was made to be like God."

"The history of the human race has been one of humans hating being human. We don't want to be "like God." We want to be gods ourselves."

"Sin is the most inhumane thing any human could do. It's the act of rejecting our very humanity."

”every human being is born into this world as an image-bearer of God, installed into an office that, from conception, one holds as traitor.” (Michael Horton)

"Your gender isn't an afterthought. It's not a plumbing issue. God made us male and female as part of his purpose to display the riches of His grace. If you lose gender, you lose christianity."
