Rising Joy, by Vicki Matheny
And the one seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new!” Then he said to me, “Write it down, because these words are reliable and true.” He also said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the one who is thirsty I will give water free of charge from the spring of the water of life. The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be my son. (…)” Revelation 21.5-7
We all like new things! Have you ever looked at your body and wished it were different? Well, when Jesus comes again, he is making all things new! We will have a new body. We will live in a new home. We will have a new life. Jesus is the beginning and the end of all things. He will provide us with water that comes from the spring of the water of life.
However, it is not for everyone. It is for those who conquer and remain faithful to the end. It is for the one who is obedient to his commands. We shall once again have the close relationship with God that Adam and Eve had before the fall in the garden. O happy day!
