Creation is waiting for us Romans 8:16-21 16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. 17Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. 18I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. 20For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. I find it really encouraging that the work God is doing in us now .. in Christ .. will be done to the whole creation . . it's kinda like .. we become co-heirs with Christ .. and creation .. gets brought into the same promise of newness and glory that we will receive as first fruits . resurrection rocks!! Father, through your indwelling Holy Spirit show us through what you do through us .. what we can do to redeem the decaying creation now . do the impossible, increase our trust in you, and then do the impossible again, In Jesus name, Amen .
