John was the brother of James. John was at the cross when Jesus died. Jesus told John to take care of His mother, Mary. Later John preached to the Jews about Jesus. He also wrote five books in the New Testament.
John was sent away to the island of Patmos. Why? Because he was preaching about Jesus. While John was on the island, God gave him a special message to share. This message is written in the book of Revelation.
God told John what heaven will be like and who will be able to live with Him forever. John must have been excited to learn more about heaven. Our Bible verses today tell us some of the things that John saw.
We should be excited that Jesus will come back someday and take His followers to live with Him. God has wonderful things prepared for Christians who are faithful to Him! Be sure that you continue to follow and obey God every day.
