God’s creation is good. But it is not at rest. It is fallen. And it is groaning. We too groan within it, longing for something more, longing for a state like Eden without the curse of sin and death which affects all creation. Romans 8 helps us make sense of history and God’s redemptive plan by viewing it all through the lens of the resurrection - Phase 1 with Jesus and Phase 2 still in our future.
