Look, I Am coming soon…

Look, I Am coming soon…

There are many passages in the Bible about enduring to the end. There are also many passages about the reward we’ll receive when the Lord does come back. What a glorious day that will be. I often ask God, in prayer, “When will you return? Why do we continue to suffer here?”

Today, my studies lead me to Revelation 22: Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

Can you imagine, that one day we will all have to stand before the God of Creation and give an account for what we’ve done here while on earth? Should put things into perspective for you. I know that it does for me. I want to please God. I don’t want to be one of the dogs who practice the bad stuff.

Don’t confuse what the Lord is saying though. He does not mean that what we do here on earth will get us into heaven. We know that we are saved by grace. But, because we are saved, we want to do good for the Lord.

I urge you to look forward to the Lord’s coming, and to practice the good that is expected of us.
