He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
These words give us one of the clearest pictures of what God is preparing for us from the scripture. We can rejoice in the fact that God has created a future in which death, sorrow, pain, and mourning will all have passed away for those who have accepted him as their God. Our decision now to follow him or to reject the truth of the word has eternal consequences. No decision has more importance than our decision to follow Jesus.
