Day 6

Because chaos will be ultimately defeated by God, Mick Pope calls us to be agents of order and renewal.

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

Revelation 21:1


In the Hebrew Bible, the sea represents chaos. God brought order out of chaos, but chaos returned in the flood as judgment on humans who filled the earth with violence. Climate change is an act of violence. In Revelation 21 we see a window into the future where chaos is defeated, and the heavens and earth are renewed. Yet God and the Lamb sit on the throne now (Rev 5-6). The future starts now, and every act of renewal is worship at the throne.


Take Action

Take action by creating  something: a painting, poem, song, sculpture, cake, garden, a comfortable space in your home. And as you create, remember that God is bringing order out of chaos and a future where everything will be renewed.
