I was driving in the car with a young boy and his mother today, and suddenly he announced: “I don’t have to go to school today! It’s the new weekend!”
I immediately thought, That will preach.
But only a little bit of preaching. We should connect creation, redemption, and re-creation. It is the God who creates who can take what is broken and redeem it. It is the God who created all in the beginning who can “make all things new” (Revelation 21:5).
Our soteriology becomes our eschatology and it is all rooted in creation.
It’s the new weekend! Rejoice!
