This sermon is the second in the Beginnings series, preached for Emmanuel Reformed Church, in Springfield, SD, on Sunday, January 20, 2019.
This is part 1 of a 2-part look at human beginnings.
Specifically, God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — creates humanity out of love, in love, for love. This is our beginning, and what it means to bear the Image of God.
And we see the fullest expression of the Image of God in Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:15). Jesus Christ is the new beginning of the restoration of our ability to reflect God’s Image after sin (2 Corinthians 3:18). And Jesus Christ is our pattern in the meantime.
May God bless you and keep you as you live into Him, loving Him wholeheartedly and loving the neighbors He has placed in your path today. Amen!
