The name Thursday is associated with Jupiter, the king of the Roman gods. The planet Jupiter was named after him. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. It is bigger than all the other planets combined.
The Roman god, Jupiter, and the planet Jupiter represent power. But the greatest power in the universe is not a false god or a planet. The one true God is the most powerful force in the universe. He is the ruler over all creation. God has always lived and will continue to live forever.
Our Bible Reading today tells us about the wonderful things that God will do. The devil will be punished for all the terrible things he has done. Then God will welcome Christians into their eternal home with Him. Verse 4 says, “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain. All the old ways are gone.”
God, our loving Father, is all-powerful. Thank Him today for His love and His promise of heaven.
