Being Fully Human

Some beautiful words on humans being "the image of God:"

"Every human being is God's creature made in God's own image. God endowed each of us with the powers of personality that make it possible for us to worship and serve him. When using those powers to those ends, we are most fully what God intended us to be, and then are more completely human."

-Millard Erickson, Christian Theology pg. 536
