AMAZING ETERNAL ABODE
TEXT: REVELATION 21:1-7
MEMORY VERSE: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea” (REVELATION 21:1).
Our text underscores the vision of a new heaven and a new earth as seen by Apostle John. The passing away of the old world of trouble and commotion shall pave way for the new world.
There is a world to come which is a better country, a heavenly city, prepared for the redeemed and overcomers. A place that is devoid of tears and sorrow but characterized by eternal joy and gladness. A world where no one grows old or dies.
The glories, beautiful edifices, trending fashion of this present world will melt with fervent heat. Christian youths are therefore admonished to lay up their treasures in heaven and to endure the present pain and predicament because they are ‘light affliction’ and will certainly pass away with the old world.
We must fix our eyes on Jesus and hold on to His promises as they are ‘true and faithful’. Sin, no matter how infinitesimal, will hinder anyone from experiencing the new world. God’s river of salvation still flows today. Therefore, drink from it freely to be prepared for the glories of heaven.
QUOTE: We must fix our eyes on Jesus.
CHALLENGE: Endure your present light afflictions.
PRAYER: Lord, prepare me for the supernal heaven.
