No Nightlight Required
The New Testament closes with Revelation 22. This chapter speaks of the tree of life and river of life. It speaks of the return of Jesus and a promise of blessing to those who love Him and a warning to those who don’t. It’s impossible for us to fully grasp what heaven will be like. I’d like to talk a little about the following verses: 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. The most powerful feature of our solar system is the sun. The sun provides light and heat to planet earth, though it is 93 million miles away. That’s a lot of heat and light. But in eternity there will be no sun because the light will be provided by the Son. Jesus will be the source of light and His presence will be near and far. He will be our light and our source. That’s amazing to me to consider. God will illuminate everything that we have in eternity. I’m guessing there will be no shadows in heave as His light will be everywhere. Consider that for a few moments this morning. No nightlights will be required. What an amazing God we serve and we are reminded of that as the New Testament draws to a close.
We have finished the New Testament together over the past year and a half; a chapter a day. Tomorrow we are going to begin with a psalm a day, focusing on the worship songs and poems of the Old Testament. Hope you continue to join the conversation!
