Acknowledging that God is our origin has implications

by Stanley J. Grenz

Acknowledging that God is our origin also has implications for the human nature we share in common with each other. Above all, it means that we realize that God alone has the prerogative to declare what it means to be human. . . .

. . . If God declares what it means to be human, then our lives are not meaningless collections of unrelated events they so often appear to be. On the contrary, God has designed us with a purpose in view. And our lives have true meaning as they reflect this divinely given design.1
