“Whatever lies ahead for the church for the rest of our messy human history, our final destiny is new heaven and earth: a cosmic, terrestrial paradise that outshines Eden, “God’s good place” from which all rebellion and its toxic byproducts are utterly excluded.
I will explore from the Bible the sure future that overflows with sheer joy and celebration, which the true and living God, Creator of everything and redeemer of his people and his cosmos, has in store for those who humbly trust him. He has guaranteed this by embedding the spark of his new creation into history in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. ”
