Reflection for the Week

When our worldview assumes that everything is headed for destruction we tend to reject the worth and value of God’s creation. It becomes misused and misunderstood, depleted, and torn apart. All manners of disfiguration blot out creation’s capacity to praise God. Some Christians believe that destruction is God’s way with the created, so what does it matter? Go ahead and let it go. It’s all headed for the flames anyway. Yet, this is not the case, for the intensity of redemption burns into transformation already now and then ultimately at the end of the age. In this way, creation will be enabled to give praise to the Infinite personal One who created it, attaining its final and glorious destiny.
