Scripture – Mark 7:31-37
Jesus is the Saving-Creator who entered into His cursed creation in order to restore it, and save us!
Jesus came as Savior to inaugurate the New Creation. He did this, first, by coming down to be close with us, becoming one of us- yet, without sin- associating with us in, and actually experiencing the brokenness of, our cursed world. Then He gave glimpses and foretastes of what the New Creation will one day be like, as He made blind to see, deaf to hear, lame to walk, and mute to sing for joy! Later He would deal with the root of all suffering, that thing which caused the curse- sin.
