One of the most awesome things about the Christian faith is we know the end of the story, because God has told it to us. God has promised that one day, this world will end and a new one will come in its place, one free from sin and all that comes because of it. Death will be no more. Sadness and sickness will be gone. Poverty in every sense will end—and it will be Jesus who ends it. We do not need to save the world, for the world is not ours to save. All we can do is what Jesus instructs and be faithful to his Word.

Challenge: In your bible time this week, try focusing on the amazing promise we have in the new heaven and earth we will see someday.
