This week we have considered that apart from God we are enslaved, but he has come to set us free. Further, we have seen that he has come to set the whole world free and deliver us from evil and suffering. We have seen that this is not just an image of victory, but of beauty and comfort. Here, in this passage, is a vision of the end we are hoping for: a king who ushers in an eternal peace, where wolves lay with lambs and lions with calves. This is a vision of what is to come, and it will be glorious.
