Jesus is Coming Soon
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we Continue in the book of Revelation with Chapter 22 and in today's text we see the river of life and the promise of Jesus' return. What stands out to me as we finish the Bible is the quote "behold and surly, I come quickly" meaning that Jesus is coming again soon. Now it has been 2000+ years since He ascended to the Father but 2000 years against the backdrop of eternity is a short or "quick" amount of time. All prophesies are fulfilled and the signs of the time are ever coming close as I believe we will see His return in our lifetime. Which makes me ask myself, "I am I ready?" Yes, I want to see Jesus and worship Him but the thought of His return makes me examine my life and refocus on what is important. Souls coming to Christ. If we knew tomorrow Jesus will come back would we not stop what we are doing and go tell neighbor to be saved? Lord help us to live in the truth of this final chapter, "Behold, I come quickly"
