“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will no more death, or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Rev 21:4 NIV)
How many people can you think of of who, just in the last year, have:
- been bereaved
- been seriously ill
- been involved in an accident
- been made redundant from work
- suffered from serious stress and anxiety
- suffered from depression
- had serious family problems
- been divorced or separated
- been victims of crime
The list goes on and on ….
How amazing it is then to think that a day is coming (for all those who have trusted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour) when all these horrific things will be forever past and gone! Can we even begin to imagine what that will be like?
Another Scripture tells us that no eye has ever seen and no ear has ever heard, neither has it even entered into the mind of any human being, what God has prepared for those who love Him.
In the light of what the Bible tells us (and we know that not a single one of God’s promises has ever failed or ever will fail), let us as His children take courage anew today. When life throws its worst at us, let us remember that it will be worth it all when we see Jesus!
And if you have never opened the door of your life to Jesus, why wait any longer? Do it now – before your heart is left eternally cold and silent because His pleading has finally ceased and will never be heard again.
