Male and Female

Genesis 1:27 So God created human beings in his own image.
                     In the image of God he created them;
                     male and female he created them.

Think about this question for a minute: Who are you?

You don' t need to continue reading until you are ready. There is no hurry.

What I know about that question and its answer is vague and cloudy. I can list all sorts of things, all sorts of actions, descriptions, all sorts of pieces that equate to me. All evidence that says who I am. But none of it accurately describes me. I am most importantly a child of God. That outranks every other earthly description. I am also male and in my late thirties. Married to a wonderful woman and we have a wonderful son. Still I am a child of God and that outranks every other title that life has for me. I am a husband, computer fixer, musician, father, son, lay speaker, etc. The list can go on and on. Still it does not say who I am. I am a child of God. Created in HIS image. Not in image to an anyone else. Yes I look somewhat like my father and a bit like my mother. That is DNA and it happens.

What you can't see at first glance, but everyone should know is that I am a Child of GOD. Each one of us is. Made in the the image of GOD. So my being male does not mean that I am a warrior, or that I am a hunter, or a killer or any of the characteristics that depict most males. But I am a male. I look like a male, have the parts of a male and act like a male. God made me a male. But I do not exhibit any of the social norms of being a male and being masculine or musculine. I don't have urges to kill, hunt, and attack. I do enjoy fishing sometimes. I am someone who is a normal male. On the other hand I am not feminine either.

I am what God made me. I am happy doing what I do and being who I am. I want you know that being myself is more important than being what society thinks we need to be or act or things we are supposed to do as males and females. It is the way God made us. And when I say us I mean all of the human race. We are all created in God's image. God does not make junk. God made people. God is perfect.

I believe that people are meant to be themselves. Not to follow norms of society and act to what others expect. I believe we are all made in God's image, male and female. Not one better than the other. Each with equal rights, regardless of skin color or gender. We all belong to the human race and God made us to be who we are. I am what God made me and I want to be the best that God made. I want to do the best that I can and being what God wants me to be. I don't believe we need to be anything more than ourselves and to be the best we can be at that.

I don't want to try and fit into any mold that the world has defined as being male. I want to be just who I am and what God has made me. I am God's creation not what other people think I should be. God created us male and female in HIS image. Not masculine or feminine. Just male and female.
