Genesis tells us that God created everything, and called all of it “good.” The relationships between God and all creation were as they should be. This is not our experience today. There has been, and continues to be, much discussion surrounding the fractures of these relationships. But, no matter how bad those relationships are, no matter how far we might break from the right relationships that were created, God promises to never stop seeking us. This is the beauty of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus: in Christ God is repairing the fractured relationships, and calls us to do the same.
“God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through him.” (John 3:16-17)
