Reflection for the Week

He who was seated on the throne says, “I am making everything new.” In renewal, we are not offered an escape, but an engagement with heaven and earth—the material world where matter and spirit will meet in visible ways. We need to recall and re-affirm that there is already a present aspect of this newness in our lives as Christians. If we are in Christ, we are new creations. However, notice that God’s salvific activity includes the political, social, economic, and the creation itself. John is instructed to write this down as it is trustworthy and true (Revelation 21:5).
