“For God is not merely mending, not simply restoring a status quo. Redeemed humanity is to be something more glorious than unfallen humanity would have been, more glorious than any unfallen race now is (if at this moment the night sky conceals any such). The greater the sin, the greater the mercy: the deeper the death the brighter the rebirth.” Miracles, C.S. Lewis, 198

That is the amazing thing about God. He can turn something messy and broken and make it possible for it to be better than what was initially intended to be. With a more profound purpose and experience. Changed.

God came to redeem, serve and save that which was broken.

“[…] all good masters are servants: God washes the feet of men.” Miracles, C.S. Lewis, 201

Today, He is mending you and me.
