Because you originated in God, who is Spirit, it means that you share God’s spirit-essence, nature, moral character, attributes, and potential. God created you in this fashion for your spirit to relate to Him, for you to reflect, represent, and function like Him. This is what it means to be created in the image and likeness of God.
Your design is consistent with you being of the God kind and part of God’s earthly family. You are a spirit being and you possess a soul, both of which are housed in a physical body. Your spirit is designed to relate to God; your soul, to transmit information from your spirit; and your body, to operate in the realm of the earth and represent God’s interests.
While all human beings share the universal design of spirit, soul, and body, the sum total of the essential characteristics and qualities God built into you makes you special and fit for the unique purpose God intended for your life.
