Remember, in His Word, God has:

  • Something to see – what does the text say
  • Something to understand – what does it mean
  • Something to apply – what does it mean to me
  • Something to praise – for what are you thankful?

This Sunday the preaching theme is The New Creation as presented in Revelation 21&22, which will be our second-last sermon in The Story of Everything. Nowhere is the unity of scripture more on display than in the final chapters of The Revelation of John. I have encouraged many of you to read the first three chapters of the bible together with the last chapters to see how they gloriously compare and contrast. We begin with creation and end with the new creation; we begin in the glorious garden and end in a glorious city; and through it all God’s dwelling place is with man (Rev 21:3).
