Let It Begin

From The Word -

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."  1:27  So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (NIV)


My Thoughts -

In order for God to make a perfect image of himself, he had to create mankind male and female.  The Bible is full of male images of God.  The Father and Son of course are the male persons of God.  That leaves the Holy Spirit who appears as a dove and fire in the New Testament.  The Old Testament talks of Wisdom as a constant companion of God and as a woman.  What if Lady Wisdom is the Holy Spirit?  I am going to take a look at Lady Wisdom from that perspective.

Prayer -

Dear Lady, as we begin this dance, let me come to know you better.  Open my heart and mind to all you have to offer me.
