Genesis - The Gospel in the Beginning

Genesis - The Gospel in the Beginning What does it mean for human beings to flourish? The word flourish means: to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, es- pecially as the result of the perfect environment - i.e. wild plants flourish at the banks of a river. So to flourish means to grow or develop and that growth and development is dependant on the environment. So what is the perfect environment, what are the perfect factors required for human flourishing? People may say, good education, financial freedom, freedom to choose, a democratic government, stable home, loving parents, a good therapist. What we see within the first chapters of the book of Genesis is a pattern for an environment, a habitat, a world where humanity truly flourishes the way it was in- tended to flourish. But sadly we also see the rejection of that and an arrogance to think that we can redesign what it means to flourish as human beings. We see that humanity self determines what it is too flourish and develop and then attempts to create the environment for that growth to foster. In our series our hope is that we see the wonderful pattern God gives for what it means to flourish as a human being and despite our rebellion and rejection of that pattern and of him, my prayer is that we see his graciousness in that he prom- ises to restore that environment, that habitat, that home, that world, that rest and relationship through the work of his son Jesus.
