15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
DAVID JEREMIAH’S TURNING POINT OCTOBER 26TH, 2023
How would you define pain? Since 1968, the most widely used definition of pain in clinical settings is the one set forth by pain researcher Margo McCaffery: Pain is whatever the experiencing person says it is, existing whenever and wherever the person says it does. In other words, no one can tell another person that they are not in pain. Pain is as unique as the individuals who profess to experience it.
Think about any pain you may be experiencing now—relational pain, physical pain, emotional pain, or spiritual pain. Regardless of the kind of pain you are experiencing now, it will “soon” be over. The Bible says that in the New Jerusalem “there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Whatever kind of pain you feel today, an eternal day is coming in which you will feel it no more if you live in the New Jerusalem. Every God-designed need and longing of the human spirit, soul, and body will be met completely in Christ.
Let today’s pain lead you to tomorrow’s pleasure in heaven.
The greatest good suffering can do for me is to increase my capacity for God.
