A Reconciled Cosmos
Creation is made in the heart of God. From the stars in the sky to the soil beneath our feet and from the air that we breathe to the blood in our veins, we are made in the image of God. Our existence is dependent upon the manifestation of God’s love, everything - from an whale to an amoeba and from the vastness of the sky to a molecule - has been crafted, planned and made to express the glory of God. Where there is life there is the creator. And where there is the creator there is Christ. All life is connected to Christ because all life originates from Christ.
It was this life that Christ came to redeem. In everything Jesus did and every word he said was from the passion of his creation. His miracles are a guarantee of a Redeemed Cosmos. His miracles were a demonstration of God's love and favour. His death was the final judgement of human sin and with this one act at the cross he forever removed the curse of creation. His resurrection was the beginning of the transformation of the heavens and the earth. The empty tomb declares that death and everything associated with death has been defeated and that we live in the New day of His victory. We have a new name, a new life, a new conciousness, a new covenant and a new identity in Christ.
For now in Christ the cosmos has been reconciled. Everything that Christ did declared that heaven has now invaded earth. That in Christ God has taken up his home with man and has moved from heaven and now dwells within man.
And this is the declaration of Christ, that we are now the children of God and that as He is so now are we .
