Genesis 3:18; Psalm 81:11-13; Ecclesiastes 1:7-8; Isaiah 53:6; Jeremiah 4:23, 27
For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope…
After Jesus’ death on the cross and His resurrection, He ascended into heaven. One day after this, the Holy Spirit came down and filled all of Jesus’ followers. Jesus had promised that this would happen, and when it happened, Peter preached reminding the people of who Jesus was and what their response to the gospel should be. It is important for us to remember that it was for our sins that Jesus died on the cross, and we need Him to fix our brokenness!
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
