Being that all of humanity is made in the image of God we all have dignity, worth and value. But it would be through the willful, sinful rebellion of our first parents Adam and Eve against our creator God, that we would turn from being His children, to His enemies. Our first parents longed not to love and worship God, but they wanted to be their own gods.
This disease is not only something that we have all inherited, but embraced and lived in the rebellion. We are broken vessels, dead inside and living in darkness. We have rejected our maker and are unthankful. This sin has left us under judgement and unable to save ourselves. We relentlessly pursue anything and anyone to try and find peace, hope and purpose in our lives.
It is at this point in God’s incredible story of redemption that He intervenes and provides anyone who would believe a new life with hope and purpose.
