A Glimpse into the Future

We do our best to exercise faith. Yet we see the future consummation only dimly and imperfectly. The writer to the Hebrews has tried to help us in the proper exercise of our faith. He has done so with his amazing statement that our Lord Jesus Christ is the heir of all things in God’s far-flung creation.

It is a concept having to do with everything that God has made in His vast universe. Everything has been ordered, created and laid out so that it becomes the garment of Deity or the universal living expression of Himself to the world.

When we read that God has appointed Jesus, the Son, to be the heir of all things, the reference is to the whole creation of God as it will be seen in its future, ultimate perfection. We cannot believe that God has left anything to chance in His creative scheme. That includes everything from the tiniest blade of grass on earth to the mightiest galaxy in the distant heavens above.

Verse

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Romans 8:22

Thought

As believers we are joined by faith to creation's Unifier. That experience with Him somewhat aids us in anticipating in the future the unifying perfection of all creation. But it is a tremendous leap from what we know today to what one day shall include all of creation.

Prayer

O God, I cannot see clearly what shall be in the future consummation. It exceeds my imagination. But by faith I know it shall be.
