Divine R & R

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation. For through Him God created everything in the heavenly realm and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see- Col. 1:15-16

Here, in the part of creation we can see, we humans may only be able to comprehend a fraction of the story of how His creation came to be breaking apart. We can see evidence of brokenness in us and around us. We can also see strands of Christ’s image in love, beauty and kindness in us and around us. The Christ child’s arrival in Bethlehem is predicated on a divine mission to repair and restore His creation. Through Christ the invisible Godhead becomes visible in all His peace and goodwill toward us. His transforming repair and restoration is not to make us something other than ourselves so that He can love us, but to bring us to the selves He created because He does love us.

Lord, thank you for the repair and restoration You are making on this small piece of creation I call a life.
