Come, Lord Jesus!

He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
How does the Lord's imminent return grab you? Do you get excited like the Apostle John who said, "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" (Revelation 22:20). That's a good reaction. It implies that John was ready. The hope of seeing the Lord excited him.
Christ's imminent return, the biblical teaching that He will return at any time, functions as a good litmus test to determine where a Christian stands spiritually. If this great theological truth of the Lord's return excites you and thrills you, that reveals your committed walk with God. But if the Lord's coming concerns you, if it alarms you, if it frightens you, that might indicate you are not right with God. After all, the Bible clearly teaches that not everyone will be taken to meet the Lord when He comes (see Matthew 25:1–13). Perhaps you feel you might be left behind.
I ask you right now, are you ready to meet the Lord? Maybe you are involved in something you know you should not be doing. You try to rationalize it, you try to justify it, but you know in your heart you're sinning against God. Let me ask you again, "Are you ready?" If not, repent from your sin and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior so that you can say with the Apostle John, "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!"
