DAILY DEVOTION, November 13, 2021
Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them,’ nor any scorching heat. 17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
The Book of Revelation gives us some glimpses of the future. Our verses today certainly make heaven very desirable. Hunger and thirst are eliminated forever. We will not have to endure radical weather changes. Jesus, the Lamb of God, will be present as our shepherd. He will see to it that our every need it met. And there will be no tears forever. Nothing will happen in heaven to make us cry.
It sounds too good to be true, but God does not lie. This glorious future awaits all who have been redeemed by the Lamb of God. Those who trust in Jesus will be with Him forever. While we don’t know all the details about heaven, we know enough to cause us to declare with Peter, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Trusting Jesus is the wisest thing any of us ever do.
Father, I thank You for the gift of life. This life on earth is good even though there are trials and tribulations. The future You have prepared for us will be wonderful beyond our imaginations. Thank You, Father. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You Holy Spirit, One God, forever. Amen.
