Sermon Text: 2 Corinthians 3:18-4:6
The doctrine of the imago dei, grounded in Genesis 1:26-28 and expounded on through the whole of Scripture, teaches us that there are two impulses that are inherent to being human. The first is that you are wired to worship. Praise flows out of you, even if it is not always directed towards the God of the Bible. And second, you have an built-in impulse to imitate something other than yourself, to find something better than you, something that resonates with you and brings your life into alignment with it.
The aim of this sermon is to give you something to worship and imitate. To that end, I want to give you three commands to follow, which are derived from Paul's logic in 2 Corinthians 3:18-4:6: First, bury the false images. Second, behold the True Human. And third, be changed into his likeness.
