New Creation

Re:Verse passage – John 21:1-14 (day six) 

And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” Revelation 21:5

In the resurrected body of Jesus is the promise of a new creation. We tend to over-spiritualize the mission of Jesus, as if God is not concerned with our bodies and the rest of the material world. Jesus’ resurrection loudly says otherwise! Our salvation will only be complete with the re-creation of our bodies at the resurrection of the dead when Jesus returns. Paul describes Jesus as the “first-born from the dead;” all those in Christ will follow.

As the disciples marveled at the resurrected Jesus, I imagine they began to conclude that he was doing something brand-new, and although the law and the prophets had always pointed to a new creation, they could not have fathomed it until those moments of revelation (John 21:1) with Jesus.

Let me encourage you not to be short-sighted in your hope in Jesus. Marvel that Jesus is “making all things new!” The work he began in your life will be completed when he returns.

  1. Look at what’s happening at Asbury and now has moved to 3 other Christian colleges. I’m so thrilled at the movement of The Spirit in these young lives.
