The Future is Bright
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’ He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”. Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (Revelation 21:3-5)
At the end, God is with men, and He lives with them. Since the beginning of time, God has been driving the human story forward leading to this dramatic climax when all things are new and God’s purposes for man are fully realized.
All things will be made new. The old order will pass away. You and I are already part of it. Our future is bright. Let us live today in expectation of what is yet to come.
The day you believed, God sent his Spirit to take up residence in you. He lives with you 24/7, 365. As we walk by faith in the risen Christ, abiding in Him and trusting Him to live His life through us, we show the world glimpses of what it will be like when God lives with man. This is our purpose, our mission, here and now.
