I WANT TO BE THERE

Devotional for Wednesday, March 9, 2022


Morning Revelation 22:1-5

Noon Psalm 15

Evening Revelation 21:18-23



I was enraptured one afternoon by a sunset so beautiful that it was impossible to describe such beauty. It reminded me of a hymn of our brother Remigio Correoso: "There is no poet who can tell the beauty of the Supreme Creator".

The Word of God describes the heavenly homeland with streets of gold and a sea of crystal.

It says, moreover, that there will be no more night and there will be no need for the sun or theb moon to shine, because the brightness of God will illuminate everything and the Lamb will be its light.

There will be unsurpassable beauty. unfading flowers, inexhaustible rivers, and I cannot help but say: "I want to be there!"

His Word tells us: "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, are those which God has prepared for those who love him. How many beautiful promises! If in a sunset we can find so much beauty, let us imagine in the Homeland where the architect and maker of all things is God. Jesus is also there, with all his tenderness, beauty and splendor. He is on the throne of God, before whose glory the sun fades away, as the stars disappear before the light of day.

Morning Revelation 22:1-5

1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


Noon Psalm 15

1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.


Evening Revelation 21:18-23

18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

March's challenge:

Do everything possible so that your life can be a visible testimony to all men as Christians living in the likeness of Christ. Everyday, praise your Creator. Keep a constant praise on your lips. Listen to Christian praise and worship music with your family. Go to Church, not only to be a spectator, but a worshiper. Worship as you pray, worship as you read the Bible, worship in your illness, always worship.
