"Who Am I"

Genesis 1:26-28; 5:1-3

When Mike talked about “we have an identity crisis,” what was the crisis to which he is referring? Do you also see it?

What is the danger of anchoring our identity to the wrong marker in our life?

What are the five divine markers that should make up our identity?

How does the diversity of the two genders (male and female) help us see the alignment around our identity with the image of God (Gen 1:26-27)?

If we were made in the image AND likeness of God, how are these two different? (ANSWER: we will always carry the IMAGE of God though marred by humanity, but we lose the LIKENESS of God at our sinful fall. We will be talk more about this in Gen 3)

How is Jesus aiding and calling us back to God’s likeness: (John 1:12, 1 Peter 1:16, Romans 12:1-2)

How does God "breathing into humanity" make humanity different than all other of God’s created order? (Ecc 3:11; Acts 17:26-27)

Why is it important that we are stewards of God's creation and environment? (Gen 1:26, 28)?

Genesis 1:28 says God blessed humanity, which means he gives humanity the promise of the “fullness” of life. What do you think the "fullness of life" is?
