Romans 8:18-19 (KJV) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Have you ever seen a parked car grow newer with time?
In this old creation, things grow older, not newer. Things naturally gravitate towards disorder not order. That is a result of the curse of corruption. But so great is the glory that would be revealed in us (who believe) that it would lead to the liberation of all creation from the curse of corruption.
The curse of corruption is what makes things grow old and worn. But when our glory is revealed in the resurrection, all of creation will be set free from the curse of corruption (see Romans 8:21).
Ignorance concerning who we are and what we are in Christ is the reason some believers are profane like Esau; trading their priceless eternal inheritance[of rewards] for temporary trappings of this world.
Go into today remembering that all creation awaits the manifestation of your glory. Even now, by the Spirit, we get to walk in the foretaste of this reality. We are God’s light in this dark world(see Isaiah 60:1-2, Matthew 5:16).
Prayer: Ask the Lord to multiply within you the grace to shine his light in this dark world and live in the hope of His calling.
