“If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
If I do not remember you, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth,
if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.”
“But the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.”
“And I [John] saw the holy city, new Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.”
Nothing in this world compares to our hope of entering the new Jerusalem. It is so precious that many have given up their lives for it. In everything you do or say, remember the new Jerusalem, a place of perfect peace and joy, where there is no sadness, pain, or death.
What a happy day it will be when we enter into God's beautiful new Jerusalem!
