Every year, in one of my devotionals, I talk about the strawberry season. I do that because we have the best strawberries where we live. I also do it because it signals that spring has arrived. Spring is the season of new life. The dark days of winter are behind us, and more green starts to appear. Jesus will make all things new when we are with Him in heaven.
“And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”
New Heaven and Earth
When the tribulation is done, and after all the judgments are complete, this current earth will pass away, and a new heaven and earth will be ushered in. There will be no more weeping or sorrow because Jesus will wipe away every tear and make all things new. This will be the dwelling place of both God and man. It will be perfect in every sense because Jesus is the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. It’s hard to picture, but it is exciting to think about.
No More Issues
When you think about heaven and all things eternal, it should put your life into perspective. Nothing is close to perfect here on earth, especially you, instead of causing anxiety that should give you a sense of calm because there is a better version of you coming soon. My pastor friend Lance said the other day in one of his messages that in heaven, we won’t have any problem loving and enjoying everyone because we will be transformed, and sin will be no more. Here on earth, we are commanded to love one another even if we don’t like the person, but in heaven, that won’t be an issue.
Jesus Will Make All Things New
Stop striving for all the bells and whistles that the world glorifies. Instead, invest in the eternal and give everything you got for Jesus. What’s interesting is that in doing so, you will be more blessed here on earth. This life is temporary, and everything will pass away. One day these bodies, which the Apostle Paul called ‘ragged tents,” will be traded in a better version with no expiration date. As a believer, rejoice in that and realize that better days are ahead.
