Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
II Peter 3:13
Let’s start from ‘In the beginning’, God created the world and created us to be hopeful beings. Hopeful of him and hopeful in Him but as we all fell short of His glory, His perfect creation fell short of hope that was once natural to us. To most of them now, hope may not come naturally, but for children of God who proclaim their faith out loud, who live in Christ day in and day out, hope means to have a confident expectation. So as children of God, we need to believe that we are set apart from the rest of the world, where mankind was made for the garden.
A garden where God’s presence dwells, where righteousness prevails, where people do not hurt each other, where illness will not steal our loved ones, the garden where one does not have to struggle with pain and agony. So it should not seem strange when we feel out of place in a world filled with sin, where we were never made for this environment. As we all know God always finishes what He starts and His word will not go back void to Him. So here’s why we await a new garden, a home that we can call heaven that we have received through gift of calvary.
It is in this circle of faith that we build with God through our relationship with Jesus, that guarantees us permanent access into His marvelous kindness and love. We can now celebrate our hope of experiencing God’s faithfulness as we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
