Salvation – 2015.07.03
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved.
Romans 8: 18 – 25
When God created all things, everything was perfect. It was beautiful and good, just wonderful! But the destroyer took possession of the earth and of man. We see the results in the news and our environment, and even in ourselves.
There is nothing as it should be. There are few people who are satisfied with themselves and their appearance. I had bright red hair and was constantly mocked for it; – I was angry with God that he had given me such hair! Others are too small, too fat, too thin, too tall, or have a pimple or a bald head. Even the Hollywood beauties constantly go to the surgeon, so that they would become even more beautiful because they are unhappy with themselves. Psalm 139 helped me to cope with my inferiority complex. And God brought about that the truth in me: I am wonderful, a great creation of God!
Also diseases, suffering and death are not in accordance with God’s creation. But he even over that he is Lord. He allows some things to happen and sometimes He intervenes, cures a disease or overcomes death. These are signs for us, that he will do it once and for all. Yes, we hope, in fact we know it even: He will save His creation and turn it again into a paradise. In heaven there will be no disease, no suffering, no more death. There is there no war, murder and manslaughter, bigotry, injustice, hunger or thirst, no selfishness, no aging, no worries … All is happy and carefree, grateful and full of peace. This is our certain hope! Yet we are like in birth pains, but the day of Christ comes, and with it the salvation of the imperfection!
Jesus, You have created me and you made me wonderful! Thankyou !! While there are a few things that are not completely right and cause grief to me, but You are the Lord over them. I am glad that you will soon complete redeem me! Then I will have a new body and can praise and glorify you without obstacles.
