The Healing of Everything Has Begun

Isaiah 65:17-25

, April 21, 2019

The central idea of the Christian faith, is that the Creator of the universe pushes history toward a predetermined goal: the ultimate healing of everything that exists. The source of healing is the incarnation -- the entrance of God into the world through the person of Jesus Christ. The event that set into motion the ultimate healing of everything was the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. That event tells us that there is much more to reality than what is apparent and that the ultimate healing of everything will not merely occur at the end of the age, but has already begun. Indeed, that healing power is present in this very room at this very moment.
