..Blessed them, and said, “Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. I am putting you in charge of the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals. Genesis 1:28 GNB

Adam and Eve lived on mission. This is seen in a couple of ways. First, they were to multiply and fill the earth. As created image-bearers, were it not for sin, they would naturally multiply and fill the earth with more and more image-bearing worshipers of God. 

As worshipers spread, the glory of God would be seen throughout the world God had created. Second, people were to exercise dominion over God’s world. They were to do more than simply care for the world — they were to harness the latent potential built into God’s very good created design in order to magnify the order, beauty and capabilities inherent in all things made by God. 

Sin changed all that God created, but it did not obliterate this mandate. In Christ, men and women can fulfill their God-given mission to fill the earth with worshipers and develop the world in such a way as to bring God great glory.

Jesus, help me to remember that I am created in your image. Help me to be a good steward of all the good gifts you have given me. Please guide me in fulfilling the mission you have given me for my life. Amen.
