Max Lucado – The New Kingdom

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

Jesus sent a message to an imprisoned John the Baptist.  “The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, and the deaf hear” (Matthew 11:5).  Jesus sent John a message about a unique, invisible kingdom, where the rejected are received: the blind, the lame, the lepers, and the deaf.  They had no place, no name, no value.

In Revelation 21:2-5 John describes Heaven as a “bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”  There will be no more death. God is making everything new!  The master builder will pull out the original plan and restore the vigor, the energy, the hope, the soul.   Jesus told John that a new kingdom was coming where people have value, not because of what they do, but because of whose they are.  It was great news then, and it’s great news still!
