Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 14th December

Nothing Old

And he that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)

All things need making new, for they are sadly battered and worn by sin. But no one else can make all things new except the Lord who made them at the first. Our Lord Jesus has undertaken the task, and He is fully competent for the performance of it. Already he has commenced His labour, and for centuries He has persevered in making new the hearts of men. There shall come a day when the body shall be made new and raised like unto His glorious body.

What a joy to belong to a kingdom in which everything is being made new by the power of its King! We are not dying out: we are hastening on to a more glorious life. Despite the opposition of the powers of evil, our glorious Lord Jesus is accomplishing His purpose and making us, and all things about us, “new” and as full of beauty as when they first came from the hand of the Lord.
