God created us holy, happy, and healthy. We became broken, battered, and bruised. Without God, there is no way to recapture to goodness we once enjoyed. With God, there is. Jesus Christ is the Way to wholeness, the Truth to counter lies, and the Life that conquers death.
In the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures of the Bible, God speaks to us a Word of hope when we have been made low and challenge when we have become arrogant. This Word comes to us through timeless stories, family histories, devotional poetry, puzzling parables, encouraging instruction, and apocalyptic warnings. But while God speaks in many and various ways, the One message is that while we were still in sin, Jesus Christ died for us so we may enjoy abundant life forever.
