I said, “O my God,
Do not take me away in the midst of my days;
Your years are throughout all generations.
25 Of old You laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
26 They will perish, but You will endure;
Yes, they will all grow old like a garment;
Like a cloak You will change them,
And they will be changed.
27 But You are the same,
And Your years will have no end.
28 The children of Your servants will continue,
And their descendants will be established before You.”
It is strange to think that we will outlast the heavens we see. By God’s grace this will be so. God will change this old worn out world for a new one. At the great resurrection, we will arise to a new heaven and earth. This table proclaims the Lord’s death. It also proclaims His resurrection. The bread is broken, but it rises. The wine is blood-red, but it gives joy. It is a transformed, new creation. Remember, when you are in Christ, you are a new creation. old things have passed away; all things have become new. This meal shows your union with Christ, so you are a new creation. Rejoice in our great God who creates life and gives favor.
