God will RESTORE everything!
Some things in life are worth waiting for aren’t they? Like queuing up for an ice cream on a boiling hot day or for a Welsh rugby team to beat New Zealand (So I’ve been told)…
Some other things in life however we’d quite happily wait for, like a call from the dentist or the alarm for school ringing in our ears each weekday morning.
In Acts 3:21, Luke says:
Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.
Christians should be looking forward to Jesus coming back to earth more than anything else, but why?
Well it’s because his return will signal the time for God’s kingdom to be established on earth. Not only that, God will RESTORE the earth back to how it was to before the fall when Adam and Eve sinned! Only then will everything be perfectly restored by the Almighty creator as He brings about:
A restored people, in a restored relationship with God, on a restored earth
Wow, that is something to look forward to if you are part of God’s family!
Here’s some questions to think about today:
Are you eagerly awaiting the return of Christ?
When you pray ‘thy kingdom come’ of the Lord’s Prayer do you really mean it?
Does the thought of the restored earth get you excited?
