We Care About Creation Because It Has Been Redeemed By Christ

So our care for creation is motivated not solely by the fact that it was created by God and we were commanded to look after it, but also by the fact that it has been redeemed by Christ, and we are to erect signposts towards its ultimate destiny of complete restoration in Christ. God's redemptive mission includes creation. Our mission involves participating in that redemptive work as agents of good news to creation, as well as to people.

Caring For Creation - No Exemptions

When God created the earth, he created human beings in his own image with the express mission of ruling over creation by caring for it - a task modeled on the kingship of Christ himself. That human mission has never been rescinded, and Christians have not been given some exemption on the grounds that we have other or better things to do.

We Are Part Of The Redeemed Creation

Creation is not just the disposable backdrop to the lives of human creatures who were really intended to live somewhere else, and some day will do so. We are not redeemed out of creation, but as part of the redeemed creation itself - a creation that will again be fully and eternally for God's glory, for our joy and benefit, and forever.
