Today’s Gospel Reading: Mark 6 53-56 – 5th ORDINARY WEEK: Monday, 11 February 2019
The Lord’s healings indicate that suffering and evil are not God’s curse laid upon us.
The world as created by God is not evil but good.
Disorder is the product of sin and distance from the Creator.
Yet, the Bible teaches how the widening split of sin is met by an increasingly focused power of grace. From Genesis through Christ, the Scriptures describe the gradual process of restoration, rescue and re-creation.
In the Bible, we witness a great cycle of creation back to God: ransomed, healed, restored and forgiven.
