Day 26 in 40 Days of Joy

Friday, May 26th

Title: A World-class City

Scripture: Psalm 48:1–2 says,

Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised in the city of our God! His holy mountain, 2 beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth, Mount Zion, in the far north, the city of the great King.”

Main Idea: God’s plan is to make his city on top of his mountain the joy of all the earth.

More: Although the cities of this fallen world have many characteristics that make city life dangerous and unpleasant, that doesn’t mean that cities must be bad. In fact, God’s people will live in a city with him forever. It will be a garden city. A city garden. A city paradise. Read the details about this in Revelation chapters 21 and 22.

Faith and Worship Declarations: I am a citizen of Zion, and I will enjoy my city forever. Thank you, O God, that you will bring the heavenly Jerusalem down to the new earth someday.
