Created by God, Genesis 1:26. God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul, Genesis 2:7. Therefore man is of three parts, namely body, soul and spirit. Man is God’s ambassador on earth to take control over all other creatures on His behalf on earth. Genesis 1:26-28. God allows man to take part in His work and thereby reveal His love for mankind more than any other creatures. Genesis 2:15. This also shows how God elevates man more than the other creatures upon the earth.
