Delighting in God’s Design

It is a common misconception that the Bible is just a book of rules; of prohibitions and mandates.  This comes from (and leads to) a very wrong view of God as some kind of stern, authoritarian, (and maybe grumpy) king in the sky that sees us a mere pawns on one of His planets.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

First, the Bible is actually one connected true-life story, a collection of 66 books written over 1400 years that contain a variety of literature, from history narratives to poetry and even letters.  Far from being a book of rules, it tells how we got here and why and describes to us a God who loves us and cares very deeply for us.

This collection begins with God and in the first 3 chapters of the first book, it tells both how we got here and why.  We find out that we as humans did not happen by chance, and that one of the bedrock relationships of our existence, family, was not something that we made up, but something that God carefully designed.  Join me in this message as I seek to renew the appreciation and respect that God's design for family deserves; I think you will be glad you did.
