And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”

— Revelation 21:5 NLT

This is the grand truth on the horizon that I need to drink in with my heart’s eyes every day. In this current life where Jesus’ sufficiency doesn’t magically cancel my responsibility or overrule my humanity, the bedrock of my hope is in this prayer: Bless You, Holy Trinity of Love. Above all else, a God exists who is wholly good and loving. Before anything or anyone existed, God was. And He was content with holy joy; Father, Son, and Spirit living and relating in perfect harmony. This God is making everything new!

As one who is in Christ, the Father cherishes me as He cherishes His Son. The Son is praying for me and has given me His Spirit of power. The Spirit is pouring the Father’s love into my heart and praying for me with groans that move beyond words. In my dusty smallness, I am caught up in a relationship of love far beyond what I can grasp, even before I enter heaven.

ACTION: Pray, Bless You, Holy Trinity of Love, worshiping each Person of the Trinity. What encourages you as you think about the eternal life to come? What pain do you look forward to being overcome in the future? How does the truth of the Trinity bring you hope now?
