“…Even so, Come, Lord Jesus” Revelation 22:20. John’s declaration to the Lord is truly a lifestyle.
John’s simple words proved that he was ready to be with the Lord. As the Lord shared that He is “coming quickly”, the response wasn’t “hold up Lord, not yet.” At times, our lives shouts that same response…
John lived a life that echoed the coming of the Lord. He was sent to the island of Patmos to essentially die alone. This prove that he didn’t forsake the Lord, he did not deny the Lord’s authority, and he loved Him even to the point of death. John’s position expressed that he patiently awaited the Lord’s return. He could have deny the Lord and been saved but he took his stance and said: Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus just isn’t a call-it’s a way of life! Let’s be found working, loving, and seeking the Lord! No one is looking to be outcasted to an island to die alone but John’s willingness proved that he was ready to be with the Lord.
Are we? Are we ready to be with the Lord-resting with Him and worshipping Him for eternity? Are we ready for Jesus to come back? Do we live a life that exclaims-Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Repentance, obedience, service, sacrifice, love, forgiveness: all shout, “Come Lord Jesus!”
And while we wait, may we hold on to our blessed hope:
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Peace and Blessings
