DO YOU MEAN IT?

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20).

Is the promise of the Lord’s coming sufficient for you as it was for John? Constantly demanding one’s way, unceasing laments over “first world” problems, and frustration that God isn’t leaving up to your expectations are but the most obvious expressions of someone’s unwillingness to say, “Come, Lord Jesus.” No, John’s declaration is based upon a willingness to wait for the fuller portfolio of God’s work to be completed. It does not sit and wait for closure and resolution on every matter, but rather, it marches forth through the sorrows, wounds, and pains of this present condition. Even so, Lord Jesus, come.
