The beauty of creation in all it’s majesty, complexity, and diversity testifies to the glory of God. (Romans 1:20) I am in awe at the colors, the sights, the smells, the sounds, and how God has uniquely created me to experience all of this. If earth is this incredible and beautiful, I can’t imagine what beauty awaits in eternity. Spoiler alert, neither can you. (1 Corinthians 2:9)
For just a moment stop and think: regardless of what twists and turns we experience in this life, a day is coming free from death, pain and suffering. All the former things will pass away. Jesus Himself will wipe every tear from our eyes. Everything will be made new… (Revelation 21:4-5)
For every follower of Jesus, this is an incredible promise to look forward to. But while we eagerly wait for the completion of God’s work in humanity, let’s never take a day for granted. Take the gift of this new day to love deeply, forgive quickly, and spend each moment loving Jesus and loving others.
