Heaven & Earth
Today, we’d like you to watch the video entitled “Heaven and Earth” by The Bible Project:
Reflect on this video below:
What did you hear/see in this video that was new to you?
Tim says, “The union of heaven and earth is what the story of the Bible is all about.” Where do you see God trying to reunite heaven and earth in the Bible?
How do we, like Jesus, bring God’s kingdom into a world filled with sin?
Read and reflect on Matthew 6:9-13 (NIV):
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’
Read and reflect on Revelation 21:1-4 (NIV):
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘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.”
