In the first two chapters of Genesis, the beauty and goodness of God’s creation is repeated in the phrase: "God saw that it was good" (Gen 1:4, 12, 18, 21, 25). After God created human beings and entrusted them with their mission, the Bible emphasizes that God “saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good" (Gen 1:31).

However, such goodness did not last; after our first ancestors disobeyed God, sin entered the world and death came to all men (Gen 3).

In Colossians 1:12–22, Paul briefly outlines the essential elements of God’s salvation. From the passage, we learn that God had not only "created all things," but that critically, Jesus, our Savior, "made peace" through His precious blood that was shed on the cross. His blood brought about salvation, through which “all things were reconciled to God” (Rom 5:10, 11, 15; 2 Cor 5:20; Eph 2:16; Col 1:20). Reconciliation is effected through water baptism for the forgiveness of sins, enabling the redeemed to be holy. This brief but vital description of the redemption process clearly shows a “fall” and “salvation” between "the creation of all things” and “the reconciliation of all things to God.” Comparing “the creation of all things” and “the reconciliation of all things to God,” we can understand two important points: first, these two events occurred at different time periods; and second, the meaning of “all things” is not entirely identical within these different time periods.
