The Graduation party for Angel and Hannah was so awesome last night!  Celebrating all things in God is such a wonderful way to spend an evening.
And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21: 2-4 ESV
Joshua 18 

3 So Joshua said to the people of Israel, “How long will you put off going in to take possession of the land, which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?
How long will the Church put off going in to take possession of the land (people), which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?
Isaiah 24 
Sin caused the earth to be cursed and the Lord will make it new again just like He does those who are Born-Again.
Luke 3
Bear fruits in keeping with repentance.

When John is asked how to do this (bear fruit in keeping with repentance) his first answer is to share (give).  Second, never take more than what is due you.  Third, don’t use power over others to get what’s not yours and be content with what you receive in wages.  This is bearing fruits in keeping with repentance!  Then he preached the Gospel (Good News).  I find this such an interesting portion of scripture because John dealt with the behavior and attitude of the heart before he shared the Gospel.  Without a heart filled with repentance and thus change, how can the things of God be received?  Okay, offering message for tomorrow.
Meditate & Apply: God has given us the people of our community for Him so let’s go get them without wavering!  One day a new heaven and earth will be created because of the work our Lord did at the Cross.  True repentance opens the heart to our Lord.

Lots to Amen in here! Thank you Lord for your plan for us, we 'take the land' and bear good fruit. Thank you Lord for souls to take with us to heaven, that we be the perfect laborer today with open doors.
