M'Intyre: on the image of God

Friday, November 4, 2016
    ... then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
    —Genesis 2:7 (ESV)
    When He fashioned man, the Deity breathed into the human form the divine life, “and man became a living soul.” Man is created to be a witness and likeness of God. God and man are so near to one another that it was possible for the Eternal Word to become Man without ceasing to be God, to re-ascend to the Highest without dehumanizing the Manhood which He had assumed; so near that the believer may say in the fullest meaning of the words, “I live, yet not I, but Christ.”
    ... David M. M’Intyre (1859-1938), Faith’s Title Deeds, London: Morgan & Scott, 1924, p. 20 (see the book)
    See also Gen. 2:7; 1:26-27; John 1:1-14; Gal. 2:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord Christ, You are the Eternal Man.
