“He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making all things new!”
seem to be so many upgrades to mobile phones and tablets these days, I can’t
keep up as they all communicate “Out with the old In with the new”.
“new and improved version” can be the tired old advertising technique that
rightly arouses our suspicion but not so with this promise “I am making all
things new” because it comes from God who is utterly faithful.
We are promised that there will come a day of new things, when God dwells once again with humanity in harmony. A day when God has reserved for himself the task of wiping every tear from the eye, when all suffering ceases, no more death or mourning or crying will be heard because there will be no more cause, a day when all things are made new.It will not be a day when all new things will be made, but a day when all things are made new.
will not be a discarding of what has gone before, as if it no longer matters
and can be scrapped and replaced by the shiny new version. No on that day all
things are renewed, perfected, completed and that is important, the ultimate
upgrade. God doesn’t make
all new things, he makes all things new, and that includes all who follow him. So
as we enter another New Year with those resolutions, hopes & dreams which
may be a little too familiar to the ones we have the year before, know that God
is at work seeking your permission to upgrade your life.
