God pictures for us what it will be like to live in the new heaven and the new earth.
2 Thessalonians 1:5-10

2 Thessalonians 1:5-10


At home with Jesus you are perfectly safe for all eternity.
Hebrews 2:9-18

Hebrews 2:9-18


Jesus left heaven to save us so that we could call him our brother.
God's law is truth but it can't sett you free  because you break it. Only he Son can set you free by his life and death in your place, and his glorious resurrection from the dead. He has set you free from sin, death and Satan  so that you can serve the Lord without fear and your neighbor in love.
Psalm 2 describes what Jesus faced as the Pharisees and Sadducees tried to trap him with difficult questions. When they were finished he asked them a question that made it clear that the Christ was to be both the son of David and the Son of God. Jesus is true God and true man, just  who he needed to be in order to save us. Always take refuge in him.
There is no sacrifice we can make to pay for sin. The only sacrifice that paid for sin was the sacrifice that Jesus made in our place. As we acknowledge our guilt and look to Jesus for forgiveness we will be moved to do what is just and love mercy.
Paul prays with freedom and confidence that we would be strengthened by the Spirit, know the greatness of God's love for us, and be filled with all the fullness of God.
Jesus tells us not to worry and gives us excellent reasons not to - God cares for birds and flowers and we are worth much more than they. Paul reminds us that God sacrificed Jesus to save us and if he did that, why wouldn't he provide for our lesser needs? Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath learned from experience what it means to put God first, trust him and he will provide.
Christians need constant renewal to be enabled to take off the old and put on the new.
The parable of the Good Samaritan tells us that everyone is our neighbor, even our enemy.  Leviticus 19 give us practical examples of how we can show love for our neighbor.
