Revelation 20-22

Read Revelation 20-22.

“It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This” is the name of the 55th studio album George Jones released in his long and illustrious career in country music. To be honest, I’m not sure if the album lived up to its name, but that isn’t a slight to Jones or this album. There’s no shame in not being the best album George Jones ever released. I, on the other hand, could release an album tomorrow and say with absolutely certainty, “It doesn’t get any better than this.” Would it be good? No. But it would be better than any other album I’ve ever released or am likely to release. My point is that saying it doesn’t get better than this is easier in some situations than others. It can easily be seen as an exaggeration or an overstatement, but it is neither of these things when it is applied to Revelation 20-22. It doesn’t get any better than this. That’s the whole point. What John sees is the righting of every wrong as God dwells fully with his people forever. As you read it, I pray you are filled with hope and captured by a wonder that declares, “It really doesn’t get any better than this.”
