Ever had a bad day flying the line and thought to yourself that all the things that are wrong in you and wrong in the world will never be put right? You are not alone feeling that way sometimes, and the Word of God reassures us that all manner of things will be made right some day when Jesus returns. The redemption secured on the cross by Jesus is an all-encompassing thing. The world that exists outside of us is subject to His finished work. Someday, at the consummation of all things which will occur after the return of the Son of God, the Creation, in fact the entire Universe, will be perfected by the omnipotent hand of our Savior. At that same time the “universe” within each redeemed human heart will also finally be made flawless. In this way absolutely nothing will be left imperfect in the Kingdom of God. This is the promise He has made to us who are His children: that both everything we see, and everything we are, will be transformed on that glorious day.
“And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.” Romans 8:23 ESV
