It’s so helpful for us to remember that this life on earth is temporary. Since we are currently bound by time, it can be hard for human beings to fathom eternity, but God’s word assures us that believers will be with Jesus forever. In comparison to that future glory that all of creation looks forward to, our present suffering is miniscule. The Holy Spirit gives us a taste of this glory and intercedes for us when we are too burdened to even know what to pray. Praise God for His glorious promises and provision!
Questions for further thought:
1. How do you envision eternity once you are freed from life in this world?
2. What blocks your hope and ability to look forward to the future? How can you tear down these walls?
Challenge: Read Revelation 21:1-7 and 22:1-5. Then meditate on this picture of the glorious future that God has promised. Take time to ponder the joy you will experience when creation is again in perfect harmony with the Creator.
