Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; (2 Corinthians 5:17-18 ESV) We have been talking, the last couple of weeks, about what God calls us to do. While we desire to do these things, at times we can get tired and unmotivated. Or worse yet, we get discouraged because we fear that it makes no difference and nothing will change. So how do we continue? This week, I want to talk about our motivation. How do we continue even when things are hard? I want to take us to 2 Corinthians 5. Take some time to read through this chapter.

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Revelation 21:5 (ESV) Only 360 shopping days left until Christmas. Wait!?! What!?! We just made it through another holiday season. We can't start talking about the next one. We are still in our holiday haze. We have to have a little time to recover, right? Often when we get by Christmas we feel like it was fun, but it's time to move on. Pull down the tree. Stash the lights. Turn off the Christmas music. If we truly understand the story of Advent, there are some things we can't put away. The child we celebrate in Advent didn't just arrive. He lived, died, rose again, and ascended to heaven and now we await another Advent, but this one will be different. How? This week we finish the Advent story, not by looking back but by looking ahead. Take a few minutes to read through Revelation 21-22 to get a small preview of what is to come.
