I'm in a Prayer Mood-How Do We Rate as God's Image?

May God help me!Image by radiant guy via Flickr

Good Evening to All!
Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is
anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is
any one of you sick? He should call the elders of
the church to pray over him and anoint him
with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer
offered in faith will make the sick person well;
the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned,
he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to
each other and pray for each other so that you
may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is
powerful and effective.
James 5:13-16

God Wants Us To Depend on Him and His Word.

The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
Psalm 103:8-12
I couldn't help but realize where this last scripture took me in my mind and heart. Do you remember that God said He created us in His own image? I don't know about y'all, but after reading all of the traits listed above, it makes me ashamed, to see how far we as a human race have "missed the mark". I have heard so many time "well, they're only human", and goodness knows I, myself have used that line and never thought about it, but God made us human, gave us honored us by showing enough faith in His creation to give us"free will" and look what we've done with it. Maybe it's me. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but it seems that we could all check our spirits, and take inventory of our good traits and our not so good traits and see how we "measure up to 'God's Image.'"

Good Night and May God Bless!

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's
both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

I do accept as true with all the concepts you have introduced for your post.
They're really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic
to be actually one thing that I believe I would never understand.
It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I am taking a look forward for your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
