What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see…
I am glad we have a great assured hope for the future. I am glad that I am looking for a day when all the stuff we have to put up with today will be gone and we all get a new fresh start. When this old world is done away God promises us the joy of a new heaven and a new earth. God and men will tabernacle together as men live with God and God with man.
And then there will be
No more tears
No more death
No more sorrow
No more crying
No more pain
Because all the old things will be done away with and everything will be made new.
I don’t know about you, but that list of ‘no mores’ sounds pretty good to me and we all have had, have, and will have plenty of them. We have all had our share of tears and crying. We have all had our share of deaths. We have all had our share of sorrow. We have all had our share of pain. When those things come they shatter our lives and our hopes and our thoughts. Those things consume us.
But one day, one wonderful, glorious, marvellous, amazing, fantastic, joyous day all of that will be done away as we share eternity with our God.
Indeed, what a day that will be.
