Genesis 1: 27So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
It took me a while to come to grips with the idea that God feels. All throughout the Old Testament we are shown many poignant moments of God’s disappointment, regret and wrath. Those are responses to great love and hope. That hope came in the flesh at the birth of Jesus our Christ. Read the Gospels. You will see Jesus happy, sad, surprised, angry, disappointed, and loving beyond comprehension. The point is, after all of the expression of human sin in the Bible I remain amazed that God has not written us off as a dismally failed experiment. No matter how far you have strayed the God of Luke 15 standing on the hillside hoiping for the wayward son to return remains and will always be our truth. BELIEVE!
