What gets us out of bed in the morning? What keeps us going?
Humans have a remarkable ability to ignore the greatest issues in life. We go through life pretending that we are seeking truth and depth and meaning, but we don’t. If we were, we’d be tearing ourselves to pieces looking for God, or taking turns blowing our brains out. Ecclesiastes tells us that all of human existence is futile/pointless/meaningless/hebel. In Romans 8:18-24, Paul gives us the answer: God subjected this world to futility because of Adam’s sin (Gen. 3:17) and it is God who will redeem/restore/recreate it by subjecting it to the “last Adam”, Christ.
