Week 1, Day 2

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 (continued)
B. Dominion—to represent God:
1. To exercise His authority.
2. This is also a matter of life inwardly, because only by God’s life (Christ—Col. 3:4) can we represent God – 1 John 4:4.

Genesis 1:26  And God said, Let Us make man…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.

Colossians 3:4 When Christ our life is manifested, then you also will be manifested with Him in glory.

1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children; and you have overcome them because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

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 short video podcast sometime during the day.
