We are created in the image of God from the beginning. This is the basis for God’s justice: Since everyone is made in the image of God, then we need to respect, recognize, and honor the image of God in everyone. No exceptions. And if Jesus, God’s only begotten son, has come to give us abundant life, then we also need to embody life, especially around challenging situations like abortion and the death penalty. What does it mean for a diverse Body of Christ, made in the image of God, to embody life together?
