A Reminder

TEXT: “He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20 (NKJV)

In Lagos, where I stay, if you go to the bus stop at 4am you will be amazed by the sheer number of people already gathered, rushing and struggling to get on a bus. Everyday people go about their lives, making plans for tomorrow. And, most of us get so preoccupied with our earthly activities we forget that we are waiting for the second coming of Christ.

One excuse I have often heard from people living life by their own rules is that since Jesus didn’t come yesterday, he’s a latecomer so perhaps he will not come today too. Yes, Jesus has not come but one thing is sure, which Revelation tells us, his coming is near. So let us be conscious of this truth in our daily conduct.

The coming is near, says the Lord, “Let him that doeth good continue and let also the evildoer continue.” (Rev. 22:11 KJV). So my dear, keep doing the good work and keep the commands of the holy book because the time is near.

LEARN and APPLY: The coming of Christ is imminent; continue living for Him that is the only way to make it to the end.

Pray: Strengthen me O Lord so I never get discouraged or weary of doing good whilst I wait until we will all be together with Yahweh in Heaven. Amen.
