1 Corinthians 2:11 (NET)
For who among men knows the things of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So too, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

The word Bârâ in Hebrew means to create something out of nothing. It was only used twice in the whole account of creation. It was used when Genesis reported that the heavens and the earth were created (Gen 1:1), and when Genesis reported that man was created (Gen 1:27). Everything else was made (not created) out of something already existing.

That says a lot about the value God places on man.

In today’s Bible verse, why would the Holy Spirit (through Paul) compare the way the human spirit operates in man with the way the Holy Spirit operates in the Godhead? It is because man was created not just in the image of God, but also in the likeness of God. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are three different persons that agree in one (1 John 5:7-8). It wasn’t the decision of one of them to create man; it wasn’t just the decision of the Lord God (Jehovah) --who is the second person of the Godhead, and the pre-incarnate Jesus. It wasn’t just the decision of the Holy Spirit who was exclusively the one who hovered over the face of the deep before the earth was formed. It was the decision of the plurality of the Godhead to make man. Thus, it says ‘let us make man in our image’.

That is why Jesus who is God become flesh was described in this way. ‘For in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily’ (Col 2:9). This is because He became a man created in the image of the Godhead.

Go into today thanking God for the privilege to know Him in a way that angels cannot because we were created in a way that makes it possible for us to know and fellowship with all of the Godhead.
