Christians often think too small. Not only do they often not give God’s ability to navigate their own lives enough credit, but they also don’t realize how good of a world builder he is in his story telling. The christian life is to be humble, but it is not to be minuscule. Paul teaches us that the sacrifice on the cross was the price, not only for our redemption away from the enemy to whom we defected in Eden, but it was also an entry point to a relationship with God that is on a cosmic level. The pre-sin human managed earth, but the post-sin human will manage the cosmos as part of his inheritance. Our faith doesn’t merely save us, ( no small feet alone) but it elevates us. Beyond this, Paul also shows how this path toward “upper management,” was built in as a fail safe against sin. Many Christians think too small about their salvation and its purpose in their lives. Maturity is a paramount task if you consider that the management skills we use now, will be needed more later.
