Each year Faith Christian School aims to focus our attention on a theme or truth from God’s Word. That focus gives our chapel time, spiritual life retreats, staff devotions and other spiritual life activities a target truth to aim for and to hope in. This year's truth is anchored in the hope filled words of Jesus in Revelation 21:5, “Behold, I am making all things new”!
We all can appreciate new things, from the simple excitement of a new pair of shoes, to the deep joy of a renewed friendship. Newness quite often rejuvenates and leads to some level of rejoicing.
Jesus’ words of making all things new go so much further. His words apply to everything sin has worked over, worn out and wrecked from Genesis 3 to Revelation 20. The Christian’s deepest hope and joy are in the story of Scripture culminating in Jesus’ power and presence making new all that has gone bad and been broken (Revelation 21-22).
