Focus Scripture: Revelation 21:1-4
Today's focus scripture is a beautiful vision of the future to come when all suffering ends and we will be with God as God always intended. Then God's home wil be with mortals and they will be God's people and God will be their God. Death and dying and suffering and crying will be no more. This is the future we hope for, the future kingdom of God that we proclaim when we talk of eternal life.
Then God will wipe every tear from our eyes and mourning will be no more. It is a dream, although almost impossible to imagine. Just how different would life be like if there was no death? How different if there was no mourning and no suffering?
Can you imagine such a world? What would have to change in such a world? What would people DO? Would we have jobs? Would we just sing praise? Would we bake or clean or even eat? How different would such a world be?
With those images in mind, what New Year's Resolutions might you want to make now?
