Lionel’s Resolution…

...is to "lead a life free of anguish and sorrow". 🙂 I say good for him--that's how God intends for His children to live. Earlier this morning I read a text from Mummy (thanks Mummy!), pointing me to Revelation 21:4 which says:

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

There's so much to look forward to, especially after having to struggle while wading through the more miry situations in our lives. God promises to "make all things new" (Revelation 21:5). Such is the grace of the One who loves us to the extent that He sent down His only Son to associate with us, to feel our every pain, need and desire. He saw our desparate need for forgiveness and mercy, and so made Christ the ultimate unblemished sacrifice to atone for all our sins.

And all He asks is that we love Him back. All the details (our attitudes, actions, speech etc) will follow naturally. How mind-blowing is that? 🙂
