This Week We’re Discovering

We headed to Revelation 21:1-8, 22-27 and 22:1-5. John’s vision of the New Heaven and New Earth is an encouragement to anyone facing trials in their life. Through Jesus, we have the opportunity to spend forever with God in a world where there is no sorrow or pain or suffering and where our hope in Jesus is fully realized.

Bottom Line: Keep going because God knows the end of the story. Showing determination in the face of difficult situations is never easy. However, because of Jesus, we have a hope that God will make all things new and someday everything will make sense once and for all. God does know the end of the story, and we can trust Him no matter what.

This Month’s Memory Verse

When Paul wrote this verse to the church at Galatia, he encouraged the followers of Jesus to show determination and keep doing good. We may not see results right away, but in time, God will help us see that finishing what we started was worth all of the effort.

Week 1: Hebrews 12:1b-2a  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer, and perfecter of faith. 

Week 2: Psalm 18:32  It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.

Week 3Psalm 31:24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.
