Through Christ creation is remade


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times God created all of creation and that includes the human race which, alone in all creation, was made in His image. At first, all of creation was in tune with its Creator and His plans for it, but that soon changed when Lucifer rebelled against God, seeking to make himself the ruler of all creation. Though he was defeated in this attempt, Lucifer, now known as Satan, sought to corrupt the human race and estrange it from God the way he had estranged himself. He succeeded in this effort when he convinced the first humans to disobey God, introducing sin to the human race. Ever since then the human race has grappled with its sinful nature. All human efforts to defeat this sinful nature have largely failed or, at most, have achieved transitory success as sin has proven time again its ability to thwart those efforts. The only antidote for sin that works is Jesus Christ who in His earthly lifetime was the only human being to never succumb to the allure of sin. Christ became the living sacrifice for the sins of the human race and, in the cases of those who accept Him as their Lord and Savior, ended the estrangement from God. Through Christ, God’s design for creation, especially the part of it He made in His image, can again proceed according to His plans. What God made and Satan tried unmake is remade through Jesus Christ who continues to remake it each time a human being acknowledges and accepts Him as their Lord and Savior.
