Because God created man in His own image, we automatically think God looks like us with a human body. Yet God is a spirit and a spirit has no human body. The word for image in the Hebrew is “tselem,” which simply means a resemblance, and this resemblance does not have to be a physical one but could be emotional and mental. By studying these resemblances through God’s Word to us, we begin to understand God’s heart. Built on the premise that God created the marriage relationship as a model of our relationship with Him, God’s Love for Us explores the possibility that being created in the image of God means we were given a heart like God. Through the Biblical understanding of a marriage relationship between a man and woman, we begin to understand how the love, intimacy, caring, nurturing, security and dependency that we find in our natural marriage relationship is meant to help us relate to our salvation and consequential bonding with the God of the universe.
