Rejoice the Lord is King UMC Hymn # 716
words by Charles Wesley
"A New Heaven and A New Earth"
John Wesley's sermon on the new creation
Food for Thought-
We need the grace of God to become a part of the spirituality of heaven. We see in 1 John 3:2-3 KJV that we will be changed:
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure..
Matthew 6:19-21 KJV
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
