Thought for the day

Revelation 21:1-5 “Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “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. 4 ‘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.” 5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Thought for the day

I remember studying the bible with a brother who was gay. During this time he was going through Aids treatment. The entire journey completely changed me and my perspective on God’s unconditional love. We as Christians must change the way we love by remembering that the love of God truly is unconditional and is for all to receive. We are not to govern who is eligible to receive God’s love, but we are to give and receive it aggressively. Now, that is love and grace! – Lionel
