All Things Reconciled Script

For the creation waits with longing for the revealing of the children of God, in hopes that the creation itself will be set free from it’s bondage, and obtain the freedom and the glory of the children of God.

                                                                                                               In the beginning was the Word.                                                                                                                 

The Word was with God, and the Word was God.

All things were made through him,  

And without him nothing was made that was made.

It is he who made the earth by his power 

Who established the world by his wisdom

And through his understanding stretched out the heavens 

God looked at what he had made 

And it was good, so very good.

God spoke, let us make man in our own image reflecting our nature  

So that they will be responsible for the fish of the sea,

The Birds of the air, and every animal that walks the face of the earth.

And God blessed them. 

Then came the fall. Humankind broken because of sin

At odds with the Creator, and his creation.

Yet God so loved the world He sent his only Son

In whom the fulness of God was pleased to dwell

Through him to reconcile himself to all things

Making peace by the blood of the cross

There is no inconsistency between creation and salvation

For the Father has employed the same agent for both works

The mystery that has been hidden throughout the ages

Has now been revealed to his saints

He has given us the ministry of reconciliation

What then? Are we to stand by idly?

Casual spectators of our Lord's great works?

Or will we rise up as Christ's hands and feet

Proclaiming the good news to all his creation.

For the creation waits with longing, for the creation waits with longing

In hopes that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage

And obtain the freedom and the glory, of the children of God.
