This sermon, the 19th in the series Revelation: A Vision of Christ, was preached on November 10, 2019.
What is our hope for the end of all things? “End,” meaning not just the final destination, but the greater destiny, the God-intended purpose, for all things? To understand, we should look at the beginning of God’s story: God wants to be in perfect relationship with humans in a good creation, without shame or sin or competing allegiances.
Q. How does the rest of your life’s story change if the new heaven will be here, physical, in a new earth? What do you need to do today if God is working to bring heaven to you?
Q. Where is the evidence in your life that Christ is already making you “a new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17)? Celebrate! OR, what is one area of your life where you long for renewal? Cry out! Either or both, pray to God who gives newness of life.
