“He who testifies about these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.”
Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.” (Revelation 22:20-21)
These are the last words written in the New Testament. The apostle John wrote these words while sitting in exile on the island of Patmos. With all the struggles and the persecution that the church was facing at that time, John had hope. Because he held firm to the belief that Jesus was returning.
We as part of the church today hold that belief as well. We also know that God’s timing is not the same as our timing. We do not know the exact day or hour but Jesus has promised He will return. And as we go through living our lives and following the calling that God has for each of us individually and collectively, we echo the words that John wrote here: “Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!”
This week, let us cling to that hope. Let us in the midst of hardships and struggles cry out to God. And let us share the hope that we have even in the midst of suffering. Jesus is coming again.
