One Created To Another

We all have heard how that Christianity is a relationship more than it is a religion. But, wow, to think how that also applies to the creation is a new concept for me! That is, one member of the Godhead was speaking imperatively to another in the work of creating "Let there be...." or "let us create man...." kind of like the angels in Isaiah 6 praising God but also praising Him to one another, "Holy, holy, holy!' (the trihaggion theologians call it)) So even Creation occurred in the context of relationship. And why shouldn't it be so, if our faith is a relationship then why shoudn't it have been so from the very beginning? It makes more and more sense the more I think about it. Redemption then follows in that imperative relational context: "Father if it be possible let this cup pass from me but not my will but yours..." and later: "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do" and then the dreadful: "Father, why have you forsaken me!?"
But returning for a moment to creation, Adam and Eve knew the full glory and majesty of those bodies freshly formed. They were, after all, the culmination and crown of that collaborative creation. It wasn't going to get any better than that of which God said, "It is VERY good!" Then after the Fall they must have been like those elders of Israel who, having seen and experienced the glory of Solomon's Temple, wept at the sight of its poor replacement, or shall we say its "substitute", because indeed no man-made structure would ever replace it. Similarly no matter how fit or athletic, or built up and healthy,(and sometimes they are impressively so) these present bodies can never replace the ones created for Adam and Eve or the ones God's children will receive in the Resurrection. Praise the Lord!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
