In the genealogy of Adam's descendants, we see the beginnings of God's victory over death in Christ Jesus.
God finds us where we are, and invites us to repent: to change our lives by changing our minds. God welcomes us back to Him with love, not wrath, ready to show us His unfathomable mercy.
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.
Creation bears the mark of its Creator, reflecting and revealing His character. When we pay attention to creation, we see living, tangible expressions of God’s heart of love.
