Day 100: The New Jerusalem

Passage: Revelation 21:1–22:21
Key Verse:
“The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.”

Read today’s passage very slowly. What do you notice? What strikes you? It’s a declaration isn’t it? A passage filled with hope, a new time.

As I read this passage two sections struck me, one a challenge to my life now and the second a faithful promise that again has implications for my now as well as my future.

SECTION ONE – a challenge

“The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.”

Stop and consider you life, your priorities. Is this true of you? Is this true of me? Is the light of God and the guidance of Jesus permeating through your life?

Lets not skip past these questions too quickly but take time with God to consider any blind spots in your life or to call areas of your life back under the hand of God. It seems fitting in light of the splendour of God we take time to realign our lives with His. It seems a fitting response to reading the whole of this book.

AND THEN

SECTION TWO – a promise

With that in place lets hold to the closing declaration, the promise filled words of Jesus –

“ ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen. “

Hear His words for you and hear the blessing of grace for you life and mine. Carry these words into your summer…. He is coming!

AMEN!!
