DAVID JEREMIAH’S TURNING POINT 23 MAY 2023
Ecclesiastes 3:11 might be a summary of the whole Bible: “[God] has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in [our] hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” This earth, God’s creation, is beautiful. Yet we long for more; we long for eternity, for the roots of humanity in Eden. But our longing requires walking by faith because we can’t know the details of God’s plan by our own efforts.
But we can know some details that He has revealed to us. John 3:16 promises that faith in Jesus Christ will result in the gift of eternity we long for. And we have been given a picture of our eternal destination and home—New Jerusalem, “the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:10). Revelation 21–22 paints a picture of the eternal city that defies human imagination.
Read Revelation 21–22 and give God thanks for the city that will satisfy every eternal longing of the heart.
Those who have the new Jerusalem in their eye must have the ways that lead to it in their heart.
Read-Thru-the-Bible: Nehemiah 8 – 10
