No More Sorrow, No More Pain

Posted: January 28, 2014 in Pastor Posts

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears

There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face

But until that day, we’ll hold on to You always”

                                    Jeremy Camp – There Will Be A Day

Being sick the last few days, I experienced head congestion, coughing, fatigue, and muscle aches.  My body literally felt like I just ran a marathon.  And As I lay in bed looking up at the ceiling I began to think about people I have known who are in constant pain.  I once had a friend who had a disc missing from his vertebrae and there is no surgery that can fix it.  He takes pain pill after pain pill all day long.  There was another man, at our past church, who suffered excruciating pain every minute of the day due to chemical exposure in Vietnam.  I remember praying over him as he was weeping, saying he couldn’t go on living like this anymore.  It made me think about how many of us are in pain….physically…emotionally.  Life is hard.  Life is painful.  Sin has tainted God’s perfect creation.  We are now yearning and longing for something more.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 (ESV)

What an amazing picture!  One day, God will wipe away the pain and the sorrow.  We will be with Jesus forever.  That is the hope we have.  In the midst of our trials here on earth, in the midst of our pain and struggles, we can find hope.  As are eyes are fixed on Jesus, as our hearts and minds are set on things above, we can experience joy in the sorrow.  We have a Savior who is going to one day make all things new!
