Living according to the image

‘Man is made in the image of God. When we see a saint we see a man who is not only an image of God but who has lived according to that image. A saint is a man in whom virtue and holiness exist, a man who is righteous and just. The Gospel did not win the world by fire or the sword, but through the way of holiness and goodness, “. . . that ye may be blameless and harmless, the children of God, without rebuke in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation” (Phil. 2:15).’[1]
