God did not create us just to forgive our sins; He wants us to share in His glory!
What we are apart from God could never meet His standard
The golden reed shows us what is really on God’s heart
A living by the divine nature will be incorruptible, weighty, solid, valuable, and precious
When we as Christians live by our new, divine nature, we meet the standard of the New Jerusalem
The standard for measuring the New Jerusalem should be the standard by which we measure our lives today
