And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”Revelation 21:5
Trustworthy and True
One promise we have as Christians is the promise that He makes all things new. When someone first becomes a believer, they are promised a new life. The old is gone and the new has come. This is the first promise. The second is just as good. There is a new life after this life ends. This verse tells us that the one sitting on the throne (God himself) is making everything new. He tells us in his word that there will be a new heaven and a new earth.
This verse gives us great hope. We have hope in this life that he is shaping us into the people he wants us to be and that after this life we will live in heaven for all of eternity with Him.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for giving me new life when I accepted your great gift of salvation. I know that you are making me into a new creation. Amen.
