The New Heaven and the New Earth
And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also, he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
When Jesus descended to earth to carry out his mission, he changed all for us. Jesus changed heaven and earth and made things new. Through our belief in Jesus, we acquire this newness. We acquire a life of second chances through our continuous repentance. We acquire a life eternal. We acquire a mediator and intercessor. As importantly, we acquire a life that is led by a heart that yearns to be close to God. Through Jesus, humankind was forever changed and given a new trustworthy path. Through Jesus, our sins were forgiven both today and tomorrow. All that is required of us is to follow a heart that desires Jesus and his trustworthy new ways.
Points of Reflection
· What would you like to make new in your life?
· How has Jesus helped you make things new?
· How many second chances have you experienced and what was the most significant?
Blessings, until next time,
