Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: November 12, 2016

Paul says that the “whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now” (Romans 8:22 NASB).  Like a mother in labor, nature looks toward her delivery day.  We see the birth pains: floods, volcanoes, earthquakes.  We contribute to them: polluting the sky, pillaging the soil.  God’s creation struggles but not forever.  He will purge, cleanse, and reconstruct his cosmos.  In the renewal of all things, pristine purity will flow, as Eden promised.
