Bible Reading: Revelation 21.
《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Rev 21: 3-4)
Meditation one: What is the greatest and most glorious blessing for God’s people? It is that God has prepared an everlasting “new heaven and new earth” for His people. God Himself will dwell among His people and become their God. It is difficult for God’s people to live in this last age; but there is an unbreakable promise, which is that God will dwell among His people. The Lord is with us, there is nothing that we should worry about or fear of. We must hope for the return of the Lord, and we will dwell with the Lord in the greatest joy forever.
Meditation two: How can a sinful person go and meet God or even dwell with God? Thank our God, for God’s great love and mercy, sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1Jn 4:10) All who believe in Him will receive His holy life and truly dwell with God. Only by accepting Jesus Christ as the Lord can one truly understand the grace of God’s “dwelling with us”.
Prayer: O God! We praise You because You have prepared for us an eternal, holy, and perfect Kingdom. Lord! Please strengthen my faith, and in the light of the Holy Spirit, sober and wait for Your second coming. Please help me, I want to live out a new life, a new hope, a new value, and a new vision in everything, until the day I meet You. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
