Like a child excited about the return of his father.Before the apostle John concludes His testimony in Revelation, the final book of the Bible, he writes in Chapter 22 verse 21 “20 He who testifies to these things says, “”Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.”

As Christians, no ambition, no goal, no agenda should be desired above the glorious return of our King. It is our constant hope and our greatest expectation. All the work of the gospel is in preparation for this single event. We love one another enough to save each other from not participating in the ultimate reward of His return. It marks the end of earthly sorrows and the coronation of the Holy reign of our Prince of Peace. It heralds our joyous reunion with loved ones who have passed into His glory before us. But above all — our faith shall become sight and we will be in the presence of Jesus, the object of our life-long worship.
