Awe-struck Joy!

Scripture Portion

Revelation 21.9-11, 18-21

9 Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of jewel. The first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

Quote from Reading

“Thus, to the fourth question in the Westminster Shorter Catechism, ‘What is God?’ the answer read as follows: ‘God is Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.’ This statement the great Charles Hodge described as ‘probably the best definition of God ever penned by man.’”

Packer, J.I., Knowing God: 20th-Anniversary Edition, InterVarsity Press: Downers Grove, 1973:1993, pg. 21

Provocative Language

from “From Twinkle to Reality”

“Those pain-filled days or hours
To reach the prize you sought
The feeling of satisfaction
That this little bundle brought.
I gaze at you in wonder
Are you really here?
I’m overwhelmed with happiness
And a tiny bit of fear.”

Bhathal, Ritu, Poetic RITUals, 2016, pg. 5
