“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth. The former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race. He will dwell with them and they will be His people, and God Himself will always be with them, as their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain, for the old order has passed away.’
The One who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ Then He said, ‘Write these words down, for they are trustworthy and true.’ He said to me, ‘They are accomplished. I Am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give a gift from the spring of life-giving water. The victor will inherit these gifts, and I shall be His God, and He will be My Son’” (Rev 21:1-7).
New Life awaits us, now. Even in this very moment, we can turn our lives over to Jesus Christ, The Son of God, and receive the graces He won for us on The Cross. We can renew and restore our relationship with Him, by allowing His Spirit to breathe new life into us. Let’s open our hearts today to The One who loves us, to The One who heals us, to The One who forgives us and makes all things new!
God is with His people. He has never abandoned us, and He never will! Happy Easter!
