All Things Made New
More to Come
Today we reach the final page of the Bible. The book ends but the story is not over. We yet await the fulfillment of all things when we enter our eternal home. God’s redemption culminates in the glorification of His people. Jesus prayed for it in these words:
Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. John 17:24
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.” And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
The grace of our Lord Jesus be with all. Amen. Revelation 22:21
Join me here tomorrow as we begin a New Year reading through the Bible using an alternate reading plan that will take us into the Old and New Testaments each day starting with Genesis and Matthew on January 1 and ending with Malachi and Revelation on December 31.
