“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.”

Revelations 21:5


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 lies before us is to follow a heart that desires Jesus and his trustworthy new ways.

Points of Reflection

  • Why and what ways does following Jesus change us?
  • Who is Jesus in our lives and how closely do we follow?
  • Why is Jesus’ new path different and how are we helped?

Blessings, until next time,
