Man in Dominion

God's creation is crowned and finished with the creation of humanity. God showed His care for us in His detailed creation of us in His image and the blessing and mandate He gave us. When we consider God's care for humanity, our own lack of concern or care for our fellow humans is striking. Rather than preach the gospel to the lost, we disdain them for their lack of morals. Rather than welcome the outcast, the orphan, or the widow, we look down on them because they aren't like us. Human dignity is not just an nice idea; it is the inherent in the creation of humanity in the image of God. May we treat each other and the world around us with the respect due to God's image bearers. Read More

Harmony in Fullness

God didn't stop with forming creation after those first three days. After that He spent three more days filling up His now ordered creation with what would be beneficial for human flourishing. He provided sources of light, birds, fish, and animals that all reveal His worthiness of worship. As the giver of life and the creator of all that good, God deserves our undivided worship, but idolatry is a real threat to our worship. May God help us see Him and His glory such that we would worship Him supremely instead of suppressing the truth that can be known about Him. Read More

Order in Form

God is a God of order. He didn't leave the world formless and empty, instead He added order and form to it making it beneficial for humanity. He doesn't leave our lives formless and orderless either. He works through His Spirit to order our lives in line with His righteousness, and He promises that this work He began will be completed. The work that God started in the beginning is analogous to the work He continues in us. May we submit to His work in us and allow Him to order our lives for His glory. Read More
