For GOD So Loved the World

Genesis 1:26, 27 "Then GOD said, "Let Us make man in Our image... (vs 27) So GOD created man in His Own image, in the image of GOD He created Him  male and female."

Jesus is GOD in the flesh. The Holy Spirit is GOD in the Spirit.

John 14:9, "Jesus said, '...Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father.'"

Colossians 1:15, "Jesus is the image of the invisible GOD."

Hebrews 1:3, "Jesus is the radiance of GOD's glory, the exact representation of His Being, sustaining all things by His powerful WORD."

Man's image is made in three as well. 1. GOD the Father is GOD's personality of being Holy, Perfect, and All-Knowing. Each person has been given a personality recognizable to others. 2. Jesus is GOD in the flesh come to pay the penalty of mankind's sin. Each person has been given a body of flesh which is also recognizable by others. 3. The Holy Spirit is GOD in the Spirit. Man has been given a spirit which is dead until brought alive at the moment of salvation in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:1) What makes GOD so Almighty is that He can separate Himself into GOD the Father, GOD the Son, and GOD the Holy Spirit. Man cannot do this. At our death, our spirit and personality are separated from our body and abides either with Christ or in hell awaiting judgment. (2 Cor. 5:8) At the Rapture, Christians who have died will receive new bodies, those still alive at that moment will be changed receiving their new bodies and all the saved will forever be with the LORD!  (Thessalonians 4:16, 1 Corinthians 15:51-54)

John 3:16, "For GOD so Loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will have everlasting life." 

GOD has experienced everything that man has, but without sin. We have a Savior that has made everything right with our Father Who expects perfection, but only Christ can make us perfect by Him paying the penalty for our sin. Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior? If not, do so and His Holy Spirit will enter you and lead, guide, and direct your path while upon this earth!
