Tuesday’s Prayer: The Goal.
In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. Hebrews2:10 NIV
O God, when you first created this world you gave special consideration to Adam and Eve. You put everything under their feet and made them ruler over all that you had made. But it’s not that way anymore. Their sin plunged this world into a field of weeds and they plummeted from their role as ruler. But God, ever since that day – and even before that day – you wanted to restore things to the way they were. You wanted to return your sons and daughters to the glory you gave them when your world first began. You wanted to restore this world to the paradise that Eden was. And there was only one way for you to reach that goal – that was suffering! The only way to reach the goal of bringing me to glory could only come through his suffering. The only way to reach the goal of restoring earth to Eden’s paradise was through his suffering. Lord Jesus, a thousand thanks to you, for going the way that we could not go and enduring the suffering of the cross to bring me and all peoples back to glory. We could not do it. We give thanks to you that you did. Amen.
