Throughout human history, people have yearned for a world where there was no pain or sorrow. Stories and movies have created imaginary worlds where people finally found paradise. As just on example, C. S. Lewis’ “The Last Battle book ended with the characters finally finding that wondrous world of endless beauty and perfect health.
A day will come when people who trust in Christ will live in such a world. As we read in 2 Peter 3:13 (KJV) “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
The Lord promised this in Isaiah 65:17 (KJV) “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
In that glorious day, all that happened in this world will doubtless seem like a bad dream. Like C. S. Lewis wrote, we’ll be out of the shadow world and in one more real than this dim place.
That day can’t come soon enough for me but for others it’ll be too late. Only by surrendering one’s life to the leadership of Christ can people enter that glorious world. I hope you’re one of those.
So, what do you think of Randy’s song and what I wrote here? Please leave me a comment. Or else, have a great weekend anyway.
