"Privileged to Image" - Genesis 2 & 3 (The Privilege of 'We')

We first established that human community finds its origin in the eternal community of love shared among the the Trinity - Father, Son, and Spirit. Another way of describing perfect community is “communion”. This week we consider what perfect community looks like as an expression of God’s image though humanity. Genesis 2 & 3 show us not only what perfect communion looks like but also the results of communion corrupted. However, the end corruption is also revealed in Genesis - we can experience the redemption of true community in and through Christ, the new Adam. As we experience and live out the redemption of community in Christ we display what the world longs for - true communion with God and one another.
