Man's Ineffably Profound Fitness

Defining in what the image of God consists has proven more challenging than might be expected. I think this definition given by John Piper is as good as any I've seen:

"The image of God in man is man's ineffably profound fitness to image forth Christ's glory through everlasting joy in God."

John Piper, God's Passion for His Glory: Living the Vision of Jonathan Edwards (Wheaton: Crossway, 1998), 39.
