All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. How then is a loving, yet perfect, holy and just God to respond to man’s sin? The answer is at the cross, where God’s love, holiness, and justice come together to rescue and redeem mankind by grace, through faith in Jesus.
How can a good, holy, perfect, all-powerful, and all-knowing God create a world which is so broken, painful, and filled with injustice and evil? The answer lies in the freewill of man, sin, and the fall of mankind.
God created mankind with innate value, worth, and dignity by making us in His image. This gives immense value and worth irrespective of our race, age, socioeconomic status, education, or gender. This necessarily impacts how we see and treat ourselves and others.
Growing as a member of the body of Christ.
As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
– 1 Peter 4:10
