New Jerusalem is a city of light and life, we are children of light and life, and we walk in the light and in the fellowship of life. The past four posts have looked at light and life with New Testament verses.
Psalm 36:7-9 says, “How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Thus the sons of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They are saturated with the fatness of Your house, and You cause them to drink of the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.”
Here we have multiple aspects of the foretaste of life and light in New Jerusalem. “How precious” is God now! And how much more will God be to us then!
Perhaps now we only taste the fatness of His house, but in New Jerusalem certainly we will all be saturated with this fatness.
Today we drink of the river of His pleasures (the Spirit – John 7:37-39). This river will flow eternally from the throne of God and the Lamb (the fountain of life) in New Jerusalem (Rev. 22:1). Both now and in eternity this river is our supply of divine life.
Today we walk in the light (1 John 1:7) and in New Jerusalem God’s light will be the only light! The city will have no need of natural light nor of man-made light. Lord, we thank You that You are our light of life now and in New Jerusalem.
