“An Accident?”

The book of John begins with the phrase “In the beginning.”
So does the book of Genesis, for that matter.

I love this phrase, because to me it suggests that life isn’t an accident.
Not mine. Not yours.

After all, beginnings don’t just happen by themselves.
Neither do they merely happen by accident.

Since my life is no accident, then no matter how dark or depressed I feel today, hope is the deep reality and truth of life. And death is no exception.

Jesus’ hope. It’s real. It’s forever. It’s no accident.
