Reading: Revelations: 7: 9-17 (Click to read text)
Reflection: There is a whole lot in the book of Revelations I simply do not understand but this passage at least is more comprehensible than most. All the details of the great multitude in white robes and their songs of praise are amazing and wonderful. I can imagine that. The text ends with, "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." (v. 17c) Imagine that!
Everyone has had reason to cry and we seek God for comfort and strength in times of sorrow. But sometimes the tears still fall. Imagine in heaven when God will wipe away every tear? Every tear! As much as it will be a joy to hear the heavenly chorus of multitudes, the individual comfort of our own tears being wiped away brings a song to the heart. --Ruth Gates, Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
