But there is a place where someone has testified: “What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him? You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor and put everything under their feet.” In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.

– Hebrews 2:6-8 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

God has promised us so much, but there are a lot of things that we will not see this side of heaven. This is called the “now and not yet” in many religious traditions. Jesus is Lord of the earth, yet we have not seen that reign expressed over everything. Our job is to change the things that we can, while we realize that some things will take a new heaven and new earth to bring to completion. This understanding will guard us from losing heart in our efforts.
