God's Word upholds everything moment by moment. The total coherence and dependence of the creation refers us back to the Creator God.
Unlike Adam who failed at his calling and hid from God, Christ struggles through prayer and serves as the obedient Son to restore all creation back to God.
Christians are called to work for the kingdom and to pursue a life of watching in contemplation and prayer.
We have received a kingdom and an inheritance, but woe to us if we now take offence at God's Word. The Lord will crush those who deny Him the fruit of His vineyard.
The temple simultaneously represents our own hearts, the church of Christ, and the whole earth. Jesus will cleanse and restore everything.
Jesus faced suffering resolutely because He found strength in drawing close to God. Jesus had been in God's presence in prayer. He knew Scriptures had to be fulfilled. It was His delight to do the Father's will.
