God Removes All Barriers to Love

Revelation 21:1-6 by Rev. David L.S. Robertson
Series:Journey to the Heart of God - All about Relationships!

I think that’s absolutely key to understanding the deeper aspects of John’s words in Revelation 21. This is a passage about relationship. It’s a text about how God seeks relationship and goes to great extents to remove any barriers that serve to separate people from God and each other as God’s people. The watery and chaotic deep that serves to separate us from love and disturb creation is no more; the pang of separation due to pain and death is eased as God so compassionately wipes away our tears—how intimate is the love of God that approaches us in these deep moments of loss and separation. In John’s words, we hear echoes of the apostle Paul who proclaims that, there is nothing that a can separate us from the love of God—neither death, nor life…. nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom.8:38-39)
