Many believers will tell you that they are simply ‘waiting’ for the second coming of Christ, who will come and turn this world the right way up. Things are simply not the way God meant for them to be in this world. We have abused the gift of freewill and replaced his perfect will with our own selfish will.
Many Christians are bundled together and bible study groups, church pews, camps and so on, learning things that we never actually go out into the world and implement. That is not to say that this is the way that every single one of us is. Some are in the field where the great commission called us to be. The Bible boldly declares that all of creation is waiting!
19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
Your neighbourhood is groaning in anticipation of the sons and daughters of the Lord, you do not need to go any further than where you are. Start right there. All of creation is groaning, labouring for what the Lord has put in you as an individual. I am not here to tell you that you will singlehandedly turn the world up-side-down, no!
I am here to tell you that when you let the light within you shine onto the world, you make it a brighter place. No matter how small light may seem, it will always brighten a dark place. If more and more sons and daughters would awaken and take their places, this world would be a whole lot brighter. Some will argue, “Well you do not know my neighbourhood, they are not Christian.”
When more and more sons and daughters arise, the world will have a clearer view of the father. The world had a clearer view of God when and after Christ was among us, as a son/daughter of the Lord, ask yourself “DOES MY SPHERE SEE GOD CLEARER?” Or are they still groaning and waiting for the sons of daughters while you are with them?
Verse 19 tells us that creation awaits the “revealing” of the sons of God. They are not in full view, yet the bible says that light cannot be placed under a basket, but where it can shed light to all. Is your light shining before man? Or are they looking at you and still awaiting the revealing of the sons of God?
It is time they stopped having to check your status and facebook page for them to know that you are a son/daughter of God. They should begin to see the family resemblance. Jesus said when they see him they see his father! There is that family resemblance. When they see you, do they see God?
Creation should not have to wait any longer. Arise sons of God! Arise daughters of God!
