God was known to ancient man as Creator. Through Jesus Christ He comes to be known as Redeemer as well – which is a benefit to modern man as well as to ancient man.
Ancient people did not have a hard time conceiving of God as the awesome Creator of heaven and earth (at least the godly ones didn’t). What they couldn’t have imagined is this God donning human flesh, living as one of us, and suffering the worst of indignities – all while single-handedly bringing about our ultimate restoration to Him. God demonstrated His love to us before explaining it to us. How could we have believed it otherwise?
Do not think of God merely as your Creator. Think equally of Him as your Redeemer – the One who would not let you stay forever captive to your sins.
