The Lord’s Prayer and Conforming to the Image of the Son of God

In Genesis 1:27, we read:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

In Hebrew, the underline sentence “in his own image” is bə·ṣal·mōw, בְּצַלְמ֔וֹ. Its numerical equivalence is 168. But 168 is points to the Lord’s Prayer in the Gospel of Luke.

Now, we read in Colossians 1:15-16:

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

And in Romans 8:28-20, we read:

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

CONCLUSION When we pray the Lord’s Prayer, we conform to the image of the Son of God.
