Revelation 21:3-5 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
"I am making all things new." We like new things. We like the idea of a new life, a better life, because this life is not always so great. Terrible things happen, like at the Boston marathon. Friends we know get sick or contract life threatening diseases. People lose their jobs and can't find new ones. People's marriages fall apart. There is nothing safe about this life; nothing really secure. But God promises he will make all things new. What exactly does he mean? How is he going to do it? Has he already done it? Why would he do it for us? Come and hear more this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
