If left to pick from all the verses of the Bible and I had to boil it all down to one verse I would pick Revelation 21:5,
“He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
That verse gives me so much hope. Not only has Christ died for us and will return someday to reconcile all things to himself but Jesus is currently in the process of making all things new. He is taking this broken world and molding it, shaping it and transforming it in his way and in his timing to be all that he has designed it to be. It is a reminder that the world is messed up but that it won’t always be this way. There will be a day when it will no longer be “being made” new but be “all the way new” and we can be certain that is the case for the very reason that His words are “trustworthy and true.” Praise God for that!
