It is a weighty human endeavor as we try to understand God’s ways. What is He doing? How is He operating? What is His end game?
This is why the God Story is so important to us. God took the most important things any human would need and imbedding them in story. THE Story!
In addition, God also imprinted His values – His glory – in the wonders of His creation. From the macro of the Universe to the intrinsic life-giving beauty of DNA, God has provided very clear anchors into His heart. They are there for the taking!
In the human story God designated Jews & Gentiles. The Hebrews (Jews) were God’s chosen people. They would not only testify of His goodness (after all, He did deliver them from Egypt with “a mighty hand,”) but through them would come the Deliverer Who would open heaven’s door to all the nations. Both Jew and Gentile. He would make them “one new man” by bringing the reality of a “new creation” to life. Through the “First Adam” came death. Through the “Second Adam” came life.
This is the story of God. It is also the treasure for any soul who wishes to find eternal life. It is the story of the glory of the One Who created – and the privilege that it is for us to be a part of His glory!
“The Messiah has made things up between us so that we’re now together on this, both non-Jewish outsiders and Jewish insiders. He tore down the wall we used to keep each other at a distance.
He repealed the law code that had become so clogged with fine print and footnotes that it hindered more than it helped. Then he started over. Instead of continuing with two groups of people separated by centuries of animosity and suspicion, he created a new kind of human being, a fresh start for everybody. Christ brought us together through his death on the Cross. The Cross got us to embrace, and that was the end of the hostility.” – Ephesians 2:14-16/M
