God cares about the universe because He patterned the universe after the mystery of Christ. God cares about humanity because He patterned humanity after the mystery of Christ. God cares about family because He patterned family after the mystery of Christ. Everything that exists, apart from the parasitic barnacles of sin and curse, testifies to God’s glory in the person of Jesus Christ.
