And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Revelation 21:1-4)
Today's Morsel: Whether we know it or not and even though many may not display it, inside each of us is that spirit of compassion. There are those times that we see what happens, such as disasters, murder, shooting, robbery, etc., and it grips our heart strings and we cry. Crying doesn't mean that you are weak. I believe that crying is the way that God has made us to express our inner feelings. In many ways, crying is a cleansing. The Bible says that Jesus wept (John 11:35), and we are created in His image. Therefore, it isn't a bad thing to cry. Sometimes, our crying is tears of joy, while other times, they are tears of sadness. But John lets us know that one day, those of us who will reign forever with Jesus, will have all of our tears wiped away. There will be no tears of sadness, loneliness, or pain, for those former things will all be passed away. Are you looking for that day.
Sing: No tears in heaven, no crying in glory; all God's children will be happy, don't you see. No pain, no sorrow, no more worrying about tomorrow, no tears in heaven for you and me.
