Peter Hiett argues that Genesis chapter one is the history of time – all time. And his-story is the genesis of you. The deepest story is that God is making you in his image and will not fail. Jesus is his word, and even when we nail him to the tree – especially when we nail him to the tree – he does not fail. Even though we wrote ourselves out of the story; even though we cursed the word, crucified the plot and damned ourselves, even that is a story within the story – the father’s story: The History of Time and the Genesis of You.
- “Then God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” (Gen. 1:26).
- “So shall my Word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it” (Is. 55:11).
- “And God saw everything that he had made, and behold it was very good” (Gen. 1:31).
God will finish what he started. And everything, everything, everything, will be very good…including you.
