Representing His Person
God’s plan is not to rule in the earth by sitting on a big gold throne in Jerusalem and sending out messages and orders and commissions and mandates by email and texting. His plan is to be upon His throne in the heaven of heavens. “The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, But the earth He has given to the sons of men.” (Psa 115:16) Why is it like that? Is the earth simply a place of woes and defeats that we have to try to tolerate until we have an opportunity to leave it? Is the earth ours so we can grow corn and cows and have great food and enjoy ourselves on holidays? Or is it so that we can be His representatives, fully representing His Person and character by saying what He would say if He were present and by doing what He would do if He were present?
