God made all things by speaking them into existence. Yet when he set out to make persons, ones stamped in his own image, his voice only began the story. God formed humanity from the dust and then began to mold us into the fullness of life. He introduced drama and choice and conflict. And when we wandered into death, he introduced curse and pain and promise. In all these things, God invited his image bearers to step toward fullness, to realize the true capacity that he had planted in humanity. And finally, one man did.
