NT75 Day 75! Revelation 19-22

You made it!  Congratulations!

I remember from yesterday's reading the wailing and weeping over the great city, Babylon, and how it had fallen (ch. 18).  And today, we see a lot of new city, better city, heavenly city.  The old had to go so the new could come.

And so it is with the rest of our spiritual lives.  And the truth is, the old wasn't all that great anyway.  The old city was filled with immorality and darkness and blasphemies.  The old man was too.  The new city comes full of glory and goodness and light.  The new man is a new creature in Christ (2 Cor. 5.17).

I hope these last 75 days have put it in your heart to stay rooted in the Scriptures.  Now you can take the next weeks and go back over, more slowly, passages that spoke to you, confused you, or convicted you.

Whatever you do, stay in the Word.  Amen.
