"...Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life." - Genesis 3 V17

"For we know the whole creation groans and labours with birth pangs together until now." - Romans 8 V22

We all probably have groaned with pain or suffering at some point in our life. For some, the groaning may be more frequent or intense and makes us wish we were in heaven soon with our Lord. The whole creation of God was cursed when sin entered into the world and and there is no way out except the only way that was laid by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. On the cross when our Lord cried "It is finished", He accomplished the will of God and reconciled man with God. Now, we still have pain and suffering in the world and that will not go away until our Lord establishes His kingdom. There won't be any pain in the new Jerusalem, in the new world that God will one day establish. As we look forward to that day, let's remain faithful in our ministries and in serving the Lord. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
