Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
We prepare ourselves for eternal life in the new creation.
- We await the new creation in accordance with the divine promise.
- In order to become citizens of the new creation, we must diligently live our life according to the gospel.
- Divine righteousness, which is the hallmark of the new creation, must already today be manifest in us in the form of mercy and become an identifying feature of our congregations.
