2020 Summer Truth Pursuit – Week 1

Week 1: God’s Eternal Purpose and His Economy

I. God’s eternal purpose is to make man in His image, so that man can express Him, and give man His dominion, to represent Him, so that man can exercise His authority – Gen. 1:26-27
A. Image—to express God:
1. The Bible uses the example of a son being the expression of his father – John 1:18.
2. This shows that God’s image is a matter of life inwardly – 2 Pet. 1:3-4.

Genesis 1:26–27  And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of heaven and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. 27 And God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

John 1:18 No one has ever seen God; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

2 Peter 1:3–4 Seeing that His divine power has granted to us all things which relate to life and godliness, through the full knowledge of Him who has called us by His own glory and virtue, 4 Through which He has granted to us precious and exceedingly great promises that through these you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption which is in the world by lust.

Read over the outline points and verses above and use these for your prayer to spend time with the Lord in the Word in the morning. After your prayer time, jot down in your notebook one or two things that the Lord touched you with.

Later, watch the following two short video podcasts sometime during the day.
