Previously, we had considered the matter of creation and the purpose thereof especially in relation to Man, the height of God’s creation. We then considered an incident that happened, which for all intents and purposes ruined everything, and beyond all, Man lost himself.
So what next, of course, the man couldn’t answer that, he has been sent packing, serving under a brutal master who wouldn’t let him go. The devil well, we know that story, had gotten what he wanted. We now again turn to God, hoping that He still has a trick up His sleeves, something, anything.
The Eternal One indeed had one, for infinite wisdom could not be confounded, He saw it all. He knew it all. Based on that, we find an amazing verse in scripture that showed us what the game or rather Life plan was, for this wasn’t a game of high stakes poker but rather Life itself was at stake.
The verse of interest was written by the Apostle Paul to some guys in Ephesus, his claim was so stupendous, it could only be true. He says:
For we are God ‘s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
So we see God’s plan, He went back to the bases, He recreated Man. Back then, the man was created in Eden but now recreated in Christ Jesus. The man was cast out before, now he is restored, he was cut-off from the path of purpose, now in Christ Jesus, he is now set on that path.
To remedy the whole mess, Christ Jesus was brought on board again. This system of recreation is what the Christians desire to bring to the fore, every time they talk about salvation, for in it we find God with rolled-up sleeves, hands bloodied, with garment set aside- The Eternal one triumphing over principalities and powers. The darkness is over, Light has come to stay. Disaster averted or more appropriately terminated
But what precisely did God do?
