Come, Lord Jesus January 04, 2021
Every new year after shouting "Happy New Year!" and kissing Donna, I voice the words: "Even so, come Lord Jesus!"
In 2 Timothy 4: 8, Paul wrote about "the crown of righteousness ..." and then he added, "... and not just for me, but for all who long for His appearing."
Oh my! I do long for Jesus' return. Not because I hate this world ... and want out!
However, I do long to be done with sin! Personally, of course. As well as ... the constant reminders that our world does not function the way God created and intended.
I long for His kingdom.
And ... I long to be with Jesus.
Even with all this world offers, creation can never give us what only the Savior can give. Creation points us to our Creator. I not only long for His kingdom, but also for Him.
Even so, come Lord, Jesus.
