Daily Devotion: New Things

Bible Reading: Revelation 21:1-8

Key Verse: Verse 1 - “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Key Words: a new heaven and a new earth

From the book of Revelation you read about six new things. There will be a new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2), a new song (Revelation 14:3), a new name (Revelation 3:12), and new things (Revelation 21:5). It is the new heaven and the new earth that John primarily focuses on from Revelation 21:1 through 22:21. John not only tells us what will be in the new heaven and new earth, he also tells us what will not be there. He lists for us six things that will be missing.
  1. There will be no more sin (Revelation 21:27). Sin brought the terrible condition that we see before us today. Praise God - there will be no more sin!
  2. There will be no more curse (Revelation 22:3). Time and space will not allow us to cover the subject, but to God be the glory - there will be no more curse!
  3. There will be no more sorrow (Revelation 21:4). The word sorrow gives the idea of “mourning, being of a heavy heart.” Hallelujah – no more sorrow!
  4. There will be no more pain (Revelation 21:4). In that eternal home there will be no more sickness, no need for hospitals, no more need for health insurance or Medicaid, no more heart disease or cancer – praise God!!
  5. There will be no more separation (Revelation 22:4). We will be with the Lord forever. Amen and amen!
  6. There will be no more darkness (Revelation 22:5).
As you read about our new home, does it not make you want to say, “To God be the glory!”? Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

What to do:
✞ Live everyday with eternity in mind.
✞ We have a reason to be joyful. Show it!!
✞ Always remember this old earth is not our home, we are just passing through.
