"I love the sense of satisfaction that I get when I’ve done a swimming workout or race, and know that I gave my whole being and heart to God in every moment of the swim. It’s the best worship I can offer him."

Penny Heyns

In the end, God…

I will be their God and they will be my children Revelation 21:7

One day all of us will die. It is the surest thing about human life. It is something that many people dread and that is understandable. We are anxious about the unknown.

Human life can at times be challenging. We often have to deal with disappointment. When parents or friends die it can make us terribly sad. Jesus wept when Lazarus died. As athletes we are often disappointed with our performance and our failure to achieve what we feel we are capable of.

This chapter gives us great assurance. At the end of time there will be a new heaven and a new earth and if we know Jesus we will be part of it. The promises are amazing. Promises that only Jesus can make:

God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them.(V3) God himself will be with them and be their God (V3)

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. (V4)

There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. (V4)

The passage seems to say one thing clearly, the end of time is not so much about an event as a person! At the end of time we will meet God. That is a thought to keep you going today
