“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.”
God has always been a creator, from the beginning He made the very earth we stand on. In this passage of Revelation, John is writing about what God intends to do when He returns. God will create a place where there will no longer be death, mourning, crying or pain. The old will pass away and there will be something new. I cannot wait for this da., I’m tired of seeing people dealing with the loss of death. It breaks my heart. However, we do not have to wait for the glorious return of our Lord to feel better. We can be made new today. He can wipe away the tears today, and help with the searing pain of loss that you might feel.
- Would you rather be new or old today?
- What would are the things that you need God to create in you? (more patience, more strength more joy)
- What kind of creation do you desire to be, and how do you glorify God through being a new creation?
