And He that might the vantage best have took
Found out the remedy. How would you be,
If He, which is the top of judgment, should
But judge you as you are? O, think on that;
And mercy then will breathe within your lips,
Like man new made.”
The promise of Scripture, "I am making everything new" may seem too good to be true, as so much "waking dreaming," to borrow from Aristotle. I have found that hope—that the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ demonstrates God's purpose to restore all creation—to be essential to Christian faith. My weekly sermons posted here will reflect this hope of the new creation where God is "all in all."
