Title: Home Is a Place of New Life
Scripture: Isaiah 65:17-25
Speaker: Tim Spanburg,

"All their life in this world and all their adventures had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever, in which every chapter is better than the one before." - Chronicles of Narnia
I. Why a good ending is hard to believe
"So it is that in this present order of things death cuts life off before it has well begun or before it has fully matured. But it will not be so then. No infant will fail to enjoy life nor an elderly person come short of total fulfillment. Indeed, one would be but a youth were one to die aged a hundred! This does not imply death will still be present but rather affirms that over the whole of life, as we should now say for infancy to old age, the power of death will be destroyed." - J.A. Motyer
3. Evil appears to have the final word
II. Why a good ending is not hard to believe
III. How to wait for a good ending
"The disappointment, brokenness, suffering and pain that characterize life in this present world is held in dynamic tension with the promise of future glory that is yet to come…" - Fleming Rutledge
