Isaiah 35:3-7 Romans 8 - Fulfilled
Paul is clear to remind his readers (see the text from Monday’s devo) that sin corrupted not just humanity, but the creation as well. Here in Isaiah 35 the prophet outlines the redemption of the physical world inaugurated at Jesus’ first Advent (see Matthew 11:2-6), and the redemption that will only be fully realized after His second Advent. How can Christians be agents of restorative work in this world, as “incarnational ministers”, until Jesus returns?
