John 5:17-30

For all the different ways of expressing things human and divine that we find in the Bible, there are some common themes that run from start to finish. One such theme is that God has shared His own life with His creatures.

God shares with us an energy that allows us to grow and to reproduce our kind.

He shares with us a mind that allows us to think and discover the truth about our world.

He shares with us a heart that enables us to love and to be loved.

He shares with us a language that provides us with communications from times long past, as well as with one another.

He shares with us a conscience that discerns right from wrong.
