Barclay: hand of Christ

Wednesday, December 16, 2020
    And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
    —Revelation 21:3-4 (NIV)
    The hand of Christ is strong enough to uphold the heavens and gentle enough to wipe away our tears.
    ... William Barclay (1907-1978), The Revelation of John, v. I, Philadelphia: Westminster Press, 1961, reprint, Saint Andrew Press, 1965, p. 63 (see the book)
    See also Rev. 21:3-4; John 1:3; Col. 1:16-17; Rev. 1:14-18; 7:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I place my trust in You for all things.
