  10. “God comes to embrace our humanity. … the nearness of God. It is to rediscover that God is real, that God is concrete, that God is alive and vibrant. He’s not a far-off lord or detached judge, but he is humble love that came down to us.”

  1. “… Call on the Creator, who brought the galaxies into existence and has designed every fruit and flower, to do a new work of creation — to create in you willingness to say yes to God in times of temptation, desire to cooperate with God even when it is hard, power to carry through on your intentions to change.”

Challenges, issues of today’s world:

  1. “There is a world of people in need. There are unlimited opportunities to help, including organizations of every kind that provide openings for volunteer efforts.”


  1. “… heals (miraculous intercession).”
  2. “… sends his angels.”

World to come:

  1. “‘Then I, John, saw a new heaven and a new earth.’ This powerful vision, described in the Book of Revelation, describes the passing of the former heaven and the former earth and the inauguration of a new heaven and earth. John, the author of the Book of Revelation, writes then these stirring words: “The One who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’” Only God can make what is truly and really new. Only the creator of heaven and earth can bring something new into existence, out of nothing. And what God promises to make new is truly beyond our limited human imagination. But the newness that comes from God is not a philosophical or theological abstraction. It is tangible and as real as our daily existence. … his love will make all things new.”
  2. “… saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God almighty and the Lamb.” (Rv 21:22).
  3. “The blind regain their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have the good news proclaimed to them.”
  4. “The manger Jesus longs for is your heart so that he can give you his unshakable peace and eternal life. This is what will change the world.”

Future of Church:

  1. Word of God must be ‘beating heart’ of church.”
