“Made In His Image” Comes In Many Shapes And Styles

Let me drop a truth bomb on you, “Made In His Image” comes in many different shapes and styles. What does this mean? It means you don’t have to look like everyone else who calls themselves a Christian. God made you unique, so embrace the heck out of it.

There is no such thing as the “ideal” outer image of a Christ-follower. What does this mean for you and I? It means we should embrace the uniqueness God gave each and every one of us. We’re not all alike, so let’s stop trying to fit everyone into each other’s molds.

-Suits and ties aren’t your style? Awesome. Don’t wear them!

-Your nose is pierced and you have tattoos? Rad. Rep your uniqueness proudly.

-You wear ripped jeans and have a hipsteresque haircut? Wonderful. Embrace it boldly.

-Your favorite shoes are penny-loafers and you have a huge selection of Ralph Lauren Polos? Sweet! Be you. 

You’re not a huge fan of “main-stream” Christian music? That’s fine. Don’t listen to it! 

Be who God created you to be, and stop feeling pressured to be someone you’re not by people who don’t even know you. BE YOU!

If you like the NLT version of the Bible, then read it until the pages fall out. If you only read the KJV or ESV, that’s great too—but don’t you dare look at someone in an ill fashion because they don’t. You’re different people with different styles, different finger prints and different callings. You’re not the same! None of us are.

Christians weren’t ever called to look the same, but we were called to look towards the same Savior; Jesus. We were called to reflect love, grace and righteousness. Outside of these parameters, have fun being the unique creation God made you to be.

Stop judging people because they don’t look like you. Accept the reality that Jesus’ followers all look different, dress different and were created for different purposes.

  1. Acts 10: 34-35

    34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

    35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

  2. Hey jarrid, i always read your blog! just wondering what do you think or feel about music?
    i grew up with “Do not listen to world’s music because it contaminates you”… i dont listen to it but i know christians that does… and i do believe that it contaminates our mind and transmit us feelings, and it gets in the soul. but it seems to be less christians that think that way.
    i hope yo can tell me what do you think, sincerely

    greetings :)

  3. Tattoo’s are not ok according to his word. If you didn’t know Christ and had them before, God understands that you are no longer living that life style anymore. “‘Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.”- Leviticus 19:28 Also, modesty is very important too. If we are women of God, we don’t want to give the wrong impression by wearing ripped jeans, showing skin and make men lust over us ESPECIALLY in the house of God. We want to be humble before the Lord! “I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes” 1 Timothy 2:9 You may say that these are mosaic laws but Jesus did not come to abolish the mosaic laws, he came to fulfill them ;) This generation is going through an IDENTITY crisis and they just want to fit in! Well brother, we weren’t called to fit in. Our uniqueness is not based on fashion brother, its based in the power of the holy spirit and the change that He brings in our life’s! Just a thought! GBY brother.

    1. If you are going to follow that verse Moreno in the Old Testament …are you going to offer 2 doves to be clean from your monthly cycle? And every other law? because if you break one law… you are guilty of braking them all. So grateful JESUS came to save us from The Law of sin and death. Now we live In HIS Grace and Mercy. <3 JESUS changed everything. /
