But what makes the city most wonderful is that God Himself shall be in it. Ever since sin first entered our world, God has had to conceal His glory. He has had to forgo face-to-face communion with His earthly children lest His glory destroy them. But when sin is no more, the redeemed “…shall see his face;…” (Re 22:4). “…,and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. – Re 21:3 Think of what it will mean to enjoy open communion with the eternal God! Think of seeing Jesus face to face; of hearing Him explain the mysteries that have puzzled us for so long; of having Him shed new light on the science of salvation! You MUST be there to share these joys!
And you can be. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – Jo 3:16. On Calvary Jesus paid the price for your salvation. He took your place – as a condemned sinner – bearing the punishment that was yours. Now He offers you His life, His righteousness, His salvation.
To even the vilest of sinners He appeals, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” – Isa 1:18. The benefits of salvation are for all – all who will repent of their evil ways; all who accept the grace of Heaven so freely offered; all who exchange their sinful lives for the righteousness of Jesus. “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” – Re 22:17.
The invitation is urgent. And it is personal. To all who accept, God offers eternal life, eternal peace, eternal security. He offers a home in the earth made new – a home where pain, sorrow, and death will be unknown; a home where everlasting joys will abound; a home where true love will reign. He offers challenging but pleasant occupations.
There, immortal minds will contemplate with never failing delight the wonders of creative power, the mysteries of redeeming love… every faculty will be developed, every capacity increased…There the grandest enterprises may be carried forward, the loftiest aspirations reached, the highest ambitions realized; and still there will arise new heights to surmount, new wonders to admire, new truths to comprehend, fresh objects to call forth the powers of mind and soul and body…
“And the years of eternity, as they roll, will bring richer and still more glorious revelations of God and of Christ.” - Great Controversy, pg 677.
If the Holy Spirit speaks to your heart today, creating a desire to share in the bliss of eternity, accept the Saviours invitation. Surrender your heart to God. He will fill your heart with His Spirit. He will transform your life. He will give you power to live a life of victory over sin. Then in the glorious day when Jesus comes for His people, the Saviour will say to you, “…,Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:” – Mt 25:34.
