Waiting for the New World
Nov 20, 2022 • Dr. Tony Collins
Andrew Peterson’s song, “Is He Worthy?” begins with these words:
“Do you feel the world is broken? (We do) Do you feel the shadows deepen? (We do.) But doe you know that the dark won’t stop the light from getting through? (We do.) Do you wish that you could see it all made new? (We do.)
Is all creation groaning? (It is.) Is a new creation coming? (It is.) Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst? (It is.) Is it good that we remind ourselves of this? (It is.)
It is good that we remind ourselves of this! Peter reminds his readers of this glorious reality. A new day is dawning; a new world is coming, a world restored and redeemed from sin and the curse!
