Romans 8:19 Meditation


Text (Ro 8:19, NIV):

"For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed."

Amplified Rendering:

With intense anticipation and great expectation, all creation, which was exiled long ago through humanity's fall(1), waits longingly for the unveiled splendor(2) of those, who through God's Own sacrifice(3), were purchased from slavery(4) and rightly seated (once again) at the Amazing One's Table of Grace(5).

Consecrating Prayer:

Holy Father...

When you purchased me, You didn't just set me on a shelf somewhere; You made me a son and invited me to dine as an honored family member at the Table of the Beloved. In partaking of Jesus, I have Life once again. Use me, along with all who call upon Your Name, to bring relief to the groaning agony of creation and lost humanity.

In the Name of Jesus, I ask these things...

Amen.
