The events leading up to the new creation are the subject of much speculation—and sometimes disagreement—among Christians. With all the questions circumstances, timelines, meanings of the “millennium”, it’s easy for us to think that what happens in the end doesn’t matter.
But the Bible tells us the exact opposite: the end matters right now. And right now matters to the end. That’s why we’re launching a new blog series, “The New Creation and the Christian Life,” looking at five aspects of how the new creation matters right now:
- Ethnicity and the New Creation – Daniel Im
- Trials and Tribulations and the New Creation – Michael Kelley
- Poverty and the New Creation – Aaron Armstrong
- Wrath and the New Creation – Trevin Wax
- Hope and the New Creation – Amy Whitfield
The promise of the new creation is the fuel that drives everything we do as believers, from embracing ethnic diversity and suffering well to caring for those in need and pursuing those who are still far from God. The new creation is what gives us hope as we press on to fulfill the Great Commission, eagerly waiting for our Savior to return (Phil 3:20).
