But Then There’s Jesus

Russell Moore writes:

adopted-for-life2The universe was meant to be a home—where the image-bearers of God ruled and served under their Father. It was all to be ours. The primeval insurrection in the garden, though, turned the universe into an orphanage—the heirs were gone, done in by their appetites. A serpent now holds the cosmos in captivity, driving along the deposed rulers as his slaves. The whole universe is now an orphanage.

But then there’s Jesus.

When we were yet orphans, Christ became a substitute orphan for us. Though he was a son, he took on the humiliation of a slave and the horror of death (Phil 2:6- 7). Jesus walked to that far country with us; even to the depths of our hog pen we’d made our home, and hung on a tree abandoned by his Father in our place (p. 45).

Russell Moore is speaking at our October 2-3 conference. You can learn more about the conference here.
