At the start of Lent I started reading Tearfund’s lent devotional, Alive. The first message spoke into the heart of a sadness I had at the time over humanity being so broken. The message spoke of original goodness, of being made in the divine image and the need to reconnect with the divine vision. Two verses were shared that express much needed hope for humanity.
Genesis 1:27 (ESV)
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” John 1:5 (ESV)
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” Amen and Amen.
