The Lamb at the Center
Revelation 7: 16-17 "Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
Revelation points us to the promised end of the work that Jesus is doing in the world. It sounds like a lovely place to end up. Of course, this promise is not yet fulfilled. Even though Jesus has come and has given the gift of himself to us, the end result of that gift is not realized.
Jesus actually calls us to help him in the work of making that goal complete. Throughout the bible, we Jesus calling us to renew ourselves, our minds, and the world around us. And the beauty of this passage in Revelation is the promise that he will carry that work to completion.
Where do you hear Jesus calling you to work toward the renewal of things today?
