We look forward to and wait for the day when Jesus tells us everything will be new, perfect, and there will be no more sorrows or pain. We ultimately long for that day. However, just imagine what the early Christians must have thought when they heard that news! They were literally being tortured and killed by pagans, mainly the Romans. So think about that - in an era where you're living in constant fear of torture and death (maybe fear isn't the right word, but I think most know what I mean), it would come as incredibly relieving news to hear that Jesus is going to make everything new in a day where perfection, happiness, and love is all there is.
