Looking Forward to the Day

by John Michalak

He who testifies these things says, “Yes, I come quickly.” Amen! Yes, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with all the saints. Amen.

Revelation 22:20-21

Our dear friends just gave birth to a still born child. They are in such pain. Why did this innocent child have to leave the world so soon?

Come, Lord Jesus.

I turn on the news and everything is falling apart. More terrorist attacks. More violence. More wars and young soldiers going to die. How can we live in this world of suffering?

Come, Lord Jesus.

I continue to struggle in my sin. In many ways, I’ve seen victory and have been transformed. But, then I take two steps back. I fail. I fall. There are some sins that just won’t leave me alone. Who will rescue me from this body of death?

Come, Lord Jesus.

I see glimpses of light amidst all the darkness. I find a people redeemed, looking forward to the glory that awaits. My suffering leads to endurance, my endurance to character, my character, to hope. I live, not as a victim of this fallen world, but as a Kingdom priest, looking forward to the day when all wrongs will be made right.

Come, Lord Jesus. Come.
