But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

– 2 Peter 3:13 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The story of the Bible begins with paradise and it ends with paradise. The rest of the story (and the part that we live in) is between those bookends. This is what we groan for as we face the pain and suffering that is all around us. All of creation is looking for the moment when what we see is replaced with something that is familiar, yet totally new, and when we see it, we will know that we are finally home.
