Heart To Heart

The Day when all things are made right

Hebrews 2:8 Now in putting everything in subjection to Him, He left nothing outside His control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to Him.

We have just commemorated Good Friday and celebrate Resurrection Sunday this weekend. This is a very significant weekend in the Christian calendar!

We must not forget that each of us has the responsibility to develop our understanding of and about God (our theology). Part of that development entails us balancing the perspective of the “now but not yet”.

The writer of Hebrews made it clear that God the Father has put everything in subjection to His Son, Jesus Christ. In that one sentence, we read about His absolute sovereignty and power.

Yet at the same time, the writer also realised that not everything that we see is currently under subjection. Evil is still rampant. There is still suffering taking place in this world. Jesus Himself acknowledged that “the poor you will always have with you”.

This points to us that the Kingdom which has happened at the first coming of Christ is at the same time still taking place and will at His second coming, be completed. There will come a Day where what we read about throughout the prophetic literature in the Bible will fully be expressed – His Kingdom come.

Dear friends, that Day is the Day when all things are made right: the Day when we give our personal accounts of the labour we have laboured for the Father. A Day of rewards (and rebukes), and more importantly, a Day of rest for us.  As we celebrate this weekend, may we persevere in doing good as we look forward to that Day!
