Devotionary is a new podcast that is designed to make the Bible accessible and applicable to everyday life. It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

What does the creation account have to do with the doctrine of sanctification? Everything. In the beginning, God created the first man and woman – in His image. As the pinnacle of God’s creation, they were meant to reflect His glory. And for a short time, they did. In fact, immediately after making man God deemed His creation “very good.” He was satisfied with all that He had made. But something happened. The image bearers disobeyed the one whose image they bore. And their sin replaced the blessing of reflecting the image of God with the curse of being cast from His presence. Like the moon passing behind the earth and losing its access to the light of the sun, Adam and Eve lost their image-bearing capacity. But God sent another Adam to set things right.
