After reading today’s passages, use the guiding content below to help you reflect, respond, and engage with one another.
Part of the new creation process is God dealing rightly with evil, corruption, and anything that is not aligned with the goodness and flourishing of His creation. Right judgment against sin is part of how God makes all things new as He deals with all things that have gone wrong (Isaiah 24). God also makes all things new through restoration. He takes the pieces of what has been broken or distorted and restores them to Himself and to what is good, beautiful, and true (Isaiah 25).
In prayer and in the comments, reflect on how God’s righteousness leads to restoration and where you need that in your life now. What images of celebration and restoration did you see in today’s reading?
