“Come, Lord Jesus come!” is a phrase I have found myself echoing more and more (Rev. 22:20). When I see the news and the terrible things that happen, women being abducted, people being massacred, a chorus goes off in my head, “Come, Lord Jesus come!” Rid this world of the sin that so consumes it.
When Jesus comes back and brings in His reign, He will wipe away every tear and make all things new! O’ haste the day! One day every knee shall bow and confess that Jesus is truly Lord. What a sobering and yet encouraging thought.
When I gather on the Lord’s Day with my brothers and sisters, I desire as we sing songs of praise for my faith to soon be sight. I long to love the Lord with all I am, as I truly should. “Come Lord Jesus come!”
When I talk with drug addicts and their families my refrain again is “Come Lord Jesus come” make all things new. I long to be wholly sanctified, to be freed from sinning. I think Jesus “this world is empty, pale, and poor compared to knowing you my Lord” so “Come Lord Jesus come!” My Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Yet, this is the refrain of my soul at my soul’s best and does not define me. May this desire progressively define and shape me more and more. Truly, “Come, Lord Jesus Come!”
