Rom 8v19 – unBoxing Day

Millions watch unboxing videos on YouTube where someone slowly opens the box of a new phone or sports shoes. The attraction is in the anticipation of seeing the new item revealed. Anticipation builds as the cellophane is unwrapped. The smooth whisper of the box lid lifted. It’s crazy that there is so much interest in items the viewers don’t have and likely won’t ever have. Yet, research has shown that there is more of a dopamine-fueled high in the anticipation of something than in the actual thing itself. This is why people love shopping but afterwards feel a little flat. But imagine if there could be an anticipation high that was eclipsed by the reality of the actual thing. Well, there is! The ultimate unboxing. The anticipation – “For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.” (Romans 8:19). And the ultimate reveal -“At just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords” (1 Timothy 6:15). The entire earth – all its creatures and plants are waiting in anticipation of the greatest reveal of all – the return of Jesus. The pure joy of this event will exceed anything ever experienced. Are you ready for the ultimate reveal? 🌱 Open Bible –,
