In the Image of God

Notice the emphasis God places on the fact that He created us in His image. It’s repeated four times in just two verses. The bold emphasis is mine, but the number of times and closeness of the repetition shows God’s emphasis. He wants us to know this is important. Then God said, “Let Us make
