The River of Life

Our hope is built on Jesus' love and faithfulness. He keeps His promises. We can be sure of the New Jerusalem and certain of the River of Life. Check out these words from Revelation 22:

  • The River of Life will flow from the throne of God. Its waters will be as clear as crystal.
  • Rising on each side of the river is the tree of life bearing twelve kinds of fruit, one for each month of the year.
  • There will be no night--no need of light from the sun or a lamp--for the Lord God will be light.
  • No curse.
  • The throne of God and the Lamb will be in the city and we will serve Him, even as we do today.
God is preparing a wonderful place for those who love Him. Verse 7 says, "Behold, I am coming soon!" Will you be ready?

Lord Jesus, I pray for those reading your word. Inspire them and move in their hearts to love you and live for you. Amen.

When you view the beauty of Yosemite and other spectacular natural wonders, we cannot begin to imagine what God has for us in Heaven. Thanks for the reminder.

I agree. The artist did a good job of interpreting Revelation 22, but I think you are right. We can't imagine how wonderful our new home will be. Thank you for your comment.
