Revelation of John 21:3-5
I heard a loud voice from the throne say, “God lives with humans! God will make his home with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There won’t be any more death. There won’t be any grief, crying, or pain, because the first things have disappeared.” The one sitting on the throne said, “I am making everything new.” He said, “Write this: ‘These words are faithful and true.'”
One day, God won’t just watch us- He will live WITH us. And all sorrow and pain will be no more.
What an amazing and beautiful hope.
Our world is ailing.
It is in need of a major overhaul.
While our computers are still new, we receive updates and patches we can download to help enhance our security and operating systems.
But one day it becomes obsolete and then it’s no longer about a software update or a virus patch.
It needs to be completely changed.
Our world is overdue for an overhaul.
We have no solutions to the problems we have created.
The patches of temporary solutions to the wars we have raging, the pollution that is widespread and the diseases all around- don’t really work.
No wonder God says: “I am making all things new.”
He alone has the Answer we are all waiting for.
Not just a patch here and there.
