Promise Land (Part 2)

Just like when He led the Israelites of old, God is also leading us to a promised land. When Jesus was on earth, He made a promise to all those who would believe in Him, saying, “I am going to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2). Throughout the whole Bible, God reminds us of the promised land He is preparing for us. Our promised land is more than a land flowing with milk and honey. It’s renewed creation, with no more death, no more sorrow, and no more crying (Revelation 21:4). It’s the perfect, eternal home that God’s children have been longing to see for centuries! Yet, just like the children of Israel, we have all strayed. We have failed to follow God perfectly, continually breaking His good laws. There is good news, though. The same God who led the Israelites forty years through the wilderness is leading us too. He is a God of forgiveness, of second chances, of love, of mercy, of grace. He is the same God who sent His Son to take the punishment for our sins on the cross and raise again from the dead so that we could enter the promised land. In our weakness, God is still faithful! So we keep our eyes on Jesus as He guides us to the promised land. In His strength, we can hold fast and keep going. Then, when that wonderful day comes and Jesus returns to bring His kingdom to fruition here on earth, we’ll be home! What a glorious day that will be! • Macy Lee • How does God’s faithfulness to the Israelites in the past give you hope for the future? • To read more about how Jesus made a way for us to live in the eternal “promised land” forever with Him, check out our “Know Jesus” page. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain.
