The Bible actually has a very simple story line, doesn’t it?

  • God and people
  • People mess up
  • God works to fix (redeem) messed-up people
  • People still mess up
  • God sends son, Jesus to complete the fix
  • People live through the fixer, Jesus, to go back to – God and people.

The stories that fill out this main story line teach and instruct and inform us of the holy character of God and how humanity is really, really messed up. But that God continues, even in spite of our wretched disobedience, to try and rescue us from ourselves.

Maybe that is the point of it all: We are really messed up and because that is what we really need… salvation from ourselves…
