All Things New

Our King is very busy making all things new.

Themes in Revelation: The Kingdom of God

Week 11, Saturday: The End of Christ’s Rule
Christ is making all things new. All things. Period.

Read Revelation 21

Meditate on the following passages from Revelation

1.      Revelation 1: How many images and colors can you identify as describing the Lamb/King in this chapter? What do these suggest about His power or purpose? How should we expect to be affected in our walk with the Lord by what these images suggest?

2.      Revelation 4, 5: Heaven is filled with the worship of God and the Lamb/King. Is it possible to “fill up” our lives with such worship? Suggest some ways your daily life might be more worshipful.

3.      Revelation 21.9-21: Can you think of anything that might make your church more “beautiful” to the people in your community? Would you say that your church is working to bring the newness of the Kingdom to your community? Why or why not?

4.      Revelation 22.1-5 (cf. Jn. 7.37-39): How would you explain the idea of the “river of life” to someone who was interested in becoming a Christian? What does this mean for here and now? For then and there? Do you think this image should have a more commanding role in your walk with and work for the Lord? Why or why not?

5.      Revelation 22.1-5: Meditate on Psalm 1. How does the Law of God bring “life” to those who read and meditate in it? How do such people then become a source of “life” to the people around them? When the Lamb/King declares He is making all things new, what is the role of His Law in this?

My Reflection
Do the Law and Spirit of God have as large a place in your Christian life as they should? Explain.

The Glory of God
How do you experience the Lamb/King making all things new in your life? How does this relate to your calling to glorify God in every area of your life (1 Cor. 10.31)?

Glory to Glory
In each area of your Personal Mission Field, identify one thing new you would like to see King Jesus do in or through you.

Recite Revelation 15.3, 4. Share this verse and what you’ve learned from it with a fellow believer today.

Closing Prayer
Using the things you would like to see new in your life as an outline, write a prayer, interfacing with Revelation 15.3 and 4, that you could use for the foreseeable future as you seek the Lord and His Kingdom in your everyday life.
