    We'll NEVER Be Royals?
    No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him.  They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.  And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.  Revelation 22:3-5 Yesterday, I was listening to the song Royals originally recorded by Lorde (if you're wondering why I said "originally recorded by Lorde"

Amen.  Revelation 22:21 This pondering is going to be short and to the point.   Not because I don't have anything to say (anyone who has listened to my sermons knows I have A LOT to say). No, it's going to be short and to the point today because there's no need to belabor the point being made. The final word of the Scriptures is about grace.

    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

    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.
