Who We Are

September 5, 2015

Forget about the how, and even forget about the when (at least for now). Let’s ask ourselves the who question. Who are we? The Bible makes it clear that we are God’s creation, created in his image. Since the very beginning, men and women have been trying hard to answer that question apart from this relationship. The tree in the middle of the garden is the Christian’s story of how sin began – humanity doing something in direct disobedience to God. However, for those who don’t believe in Scripture or God, this story would hold no context. Yet even if the story is fantastically unbelievable to the secular mind, the metaphor still holds true: we find it much more appealing to see ourselves as gods rather than to seek after a Creator God and, ultimately, find humility and selflessness. 1 Peter 2:9.
