Genesis 1:20-31 – Made And Created in the Image of God

Today as we come to the last part of Genesis chapter 1, we are given the account of the creation of both the animal kingdom and mankind. It is quite telling that we are told in this text that the animals were “made” from the elements of the earth and not “created” out of nothing like most of the rest of creation; and so when they die they return to the dust. But humans were both “made” and “created”— made like animals from the dust, but created by the Spirit of God into the image of God.
