The Waiting of All Creation, by Jay Quine

The Word "Creation" in Romans 8:19-22
She counted down the days until the wedding. Finally all the planning, all the talking, and the arrangements would come to an end. Although nervous, she and her beloved fiancĂ©’ would be married. That picture of anticipation is painted in the Bible’s portrayal of nature waiting for the day of our redemption. All creation is waiting, even groaning for the day when you and I will be fully redeemed in a future day of glory. This is Dr. Jay Quine. In my house are three cats, a gecko lizard, a rabbit, and a dwarf hamster. They have been subjected to futility. Sin has entered the world, affecting all of creation. Remember the word, and see them and all creation waiting for the day.
