Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: November 20, 2016

Yes, you will have assignments in haven.  God gave Adam and Eve garden responsibilities.  “Let them have dominion” (Genesis 1:26 NKJV).  He mantled the couple with leadership over “the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth” (v. 26 NKJV).  Adam was placed in the garden “to tend and keep it” (2:15 NKJV).  Adam and his descendants will do it again.  “[God’s] servants shall serve him” (Revelation 22:3).  What is service if not responsible activity?
