1. Come, Lord Jesus!

    Come, Lord Jesus!
    He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!  Revelation 22:20  I'm curious . . .  How often do we pray, "Come, Lord Jesus!"? What would your answer be to that question? All the time? Often? Occasionally? Rarely? Never? For me, I'm seeing it creep into my prayers more often. Every passing day helps me realize the ultimate hope for this fallen world is Jesus. And so I'm praying more often for his return. I have to confess that there was a

    Blessings That Come in Threes
    John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.  Revelation 1:4-6 When I was child, there was this

    Holding Out For a Hero?
    They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful." Revelation 17:14 I don't know if you've noticed, but there have been a whole lot of superhero movies over the last several years.

    Lost in Wonder, Love, and Praise
    And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!"  And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the

    There's No Place Like Home
    Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.  And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.  He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and

    Jesus: King of Kings and Lord of Lords
    On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:16 Did you know that Jesus is King and Lord over all? "Of course I know that, Stuart!" I can hear you say. Yes, I'm fairly certain you've heard that, but do you really know that?   I mean, do you know this truth so well that you live like it?   Does it make a difference in your day to day activities?   Does it give you encouragement?   Does it guide you throughout your life?   Does it
