Reconnect: Build the Bridge!
When we make peace with others, it’s like we're building a bridge across
to the other side. We can reconnect and prove we care more about each
other than winning an argument.
Adam and Eve decided that their way was better than God’s way and broke
God’s rule, they changed the relationship between God and His creation.
God could have done anything He wanted, including wiping us out and
starting over. But instead, God decided to make peace with us.
Ultimately God did this through His Son, Jesus. When Jesus rose from the
dead, He paid the price for everything that was wrong and unfair in
this world. Because of Jesus, we can have peace. We can reflect the
character of Christ by caring for others and making peace.
