Mike Cosper delivered a message during a breakout at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Made in the Image of God for the Good of the World.” During the session, he discussed God’s image and many of the characteristics of our Creator that people are meant to reflect. Cosper then detailed three ways that reflecting the image of God is meant to bring about good in the world around us.
