Then the One seated on the throne said, “Look! I am making everything new.” He also said, “Write, because these words are faithful and true.” Revelation 21:5 HCSB
In Genesis we learn that God created the world and everything in it. Just look around and you can see the handiwork of God in every detail – the flowers, the trees, the animals, the insects, and all the creatures of the sea, not to mention man.
In this verse we learn that God, the Great Creator, will make everything new. He will create a new heaven and new earth. This new heaven and earth will be a place where there is no more pain, suffering, and death. As believers we will join God in this new world. We will be made perfect like Jesus and live for eternity in His perfect world. We are assured that what God says is faithful and true. He will complete what He promised.
Challenge: Take a hike and observe the majestic creation of God. Then think of how much more wonderful the new heaven and earth will be. Thank God for His creation, both now and in the future.
