Notes from Rev. Ken Priddy’s summary (fall Presbytery) of Dr. Richard Pratt’s (RTS Orlando, Thirdmill.org) addresses at General Assembly this past summer.
1. Main theme – your value is in your creation in image of God
- we have value bc we are made in image of God
- don’t have to compete with each other
- we are God’s “self-portrait” (Eph 2:10)
- God expressed himself by creating people
2. Missional application
- people have great value bc of image of God
- why isn’t the call getting out?
- bc we don’t value people “out there”
- bc we aren’t going/sent (Rom 10) to them, to let them hear
- we want the lost to come to us, but we must go to them
