What Is Man

Man has been very aptly designated a "microcosm," that is, "a little world"-a little world full of great possibilities, a little world wrapt up in the darkness of sin and death or rolling in the light of eternal day, a little world of chaos, confusion, and disorder because of rebellion against God, or of harmony, fruitfulness, and beauty because of obedience to God; a world loved by God, and for which Christ died, and in which the Spirit of God desires to brood and dwell; a world that may be saved and transformed into a paradise of God, or lost and burned up in the flames of eternal wrath. "What is man that Thou visitest him?" (Hebrews 2:6).
