Come Lord Jesus
Revelation 22:20 He who testifies to these things says, Surely I am coming soon. Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! #Bible
We live our lives trying to walk with God only to be caught up in the sins that entangle us. We suffer with the daily realization that as the Apostle Paul states in Romans 7, sin resides within our mortal flesh and constantly stumbles us in its temptations. “Oh wretched people that we are”. Only we know who will save us from this body of sin, and that is our Wonderful Bridegroom and Saviour, Lord Jesus Christ.
We endure, continuing on in our struggles, striving to walk the narrow path, falling occasionally, but we continue on towards that eternal prize, Eternal Life with our Father in Heaven.
Jesus is almost finished with preparing our place where we will reside with Him in eternity, and like a Bridegroom He will return to capture us away and wisk us off to the Great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Where we will celebrate our last phase of union with our Bridegroom Jesus the Christ. Why wouldn’t we long for this? History shows us that God hears our prayers and our groanings, and our cries for salvation, and He responded then and God will respond in these last days also.
” Come, Lord Jesus, put an end to this state of sin, sorrow, and temptation; gather thy people out of this present evil world, and take them up to heaven, that state of perfect purity, peace, and joy, and so finish thy great design, and fulfil all that word in which thou hast caused thy people to hope.” (Matthew Henry)
