Something to think about.
The City of God
4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4New International Version (NIV)
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. Revelation 21:21
Here are two references to the city of God. In one we find the ceasing of pain, sorrow, and death, in the other you see the city designed with precious stones. The promise of God is a place filled with security, love, peace, and abundance. Is there any other offer that is more appealing? Substantiated by the fact, the fact of the resurrection. The best the world has to offer does not compare.
