‘The Jesus Storybook Bible’ - by Sally Lloyd-Jones (see here)
It was never meant to be this way.
When the first human beings, Adam and Eve, ran from God, they broke his heart, and his world – and tears and sickness and pain and death came in.
God made his world to be our perfect home. But sin has spoilt everything. We have made a terrible mess of God’s world. We lost it all!!
Did God abandon us? Did he just look down from heaven at the mess we made?
No. He didn’t just look down. He came down. God himself came down.
Not as a judge to punish us, but as a Rescuer to save us.
‘He reached down from heaven and
rescued me.’ Psalm 18:16 (NLT)
