The miracle of life & the miracle of creation are powerful displays of God’s wisdom, intelligence & order. Every day I live & breathe amongst the outcome of disobedience & rebellion, the consequence of humanities disobedience upon the whole world. Each night, each day life & death turns like pages towards an end and a beginning. It’s a big book this small world. Then lulled like a lullaby we fall into the dream where nature is all there is, everything just stays the same & you do as you please or what you can get away with.
The call to faith in Christ is as much a call to wake up & to rise from the dead & the deadened things that cling to our being like a rotting corpse or a spaced out zombie in a miserable limbo of non-existence. Without God that is what we are, being eaten alive by death from the inside out. Jesus came to free us from the binding consequences of sin & alienation. He came to restore & redeem. Rev 22:1-5.
