As we look around our world today, it’s hard to remember that when God finished creating everything in the heavens and on earth, He called it very good (Genesis 1:31). We’re a long way from Eden and the paradise the Lord created. Often, Evil and ugliness hide the wonder and beauty of our world. This isn’t how things are supposed to be.
The Lord created a beautiful world full of beautiful landscapes and amazing creatures. God created everything to reflect His glory and to cause us to glorify Him. Now the world is dying, groaning for a return to its original beauty, desperate to return to the state of being “very good” (Romans 8:22).
