And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4
I have heard and read horror stories about the tortured saints of whom this message was originally delivered to. While meditating on this scripture has given me much comfort in the past, I can’t help but not feel worthy enough as my suffering is nothing compared to theirs; yet I know that on that glorious day, when all the faithful stand before their King, I will be so honored to share praises with these brave disciples who endured such anguish. All tears will be wiped away and we will bask in admiration of the One we have given all our being to. What an awesome thought especially for the horribly afflicted.
My God, I remember the stories of those who have sacrificed their lives in service to You, especially the greatest example of all and the Redeemer of us all, Jesus. It’s because of Him that I look forward to the day when there will be no more death, pain, or sorrow. Lord come quickly! Amen.
Truth in love,
