Following In The Way of Jesus

Here Comes The Bride

  • The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come…He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:17,20).

I enjoy my life. There are problems for sure, but nothing that would have me on my knees begging Jesus to come today. I know there are places in the world where that isn't so. There are some who believe that the United States is on the cusp of the same type of persecution. It seems to always be that way.


As I grow older it becomes more apparent that the reality of Jesus’ return is preferable than this life, growing old is God’s way of weaning us of this life; it's so true. It is with this perspective that our older generation can give us encouragement. Youth are bold and daring, until they settle down with a family. Family life is all consuming, until you reach middle age and the kids leave home. Our senior years are reflective about legacies and grandchildren. And finally, our eyes will close and we will stand in the presence of our savior. That's life in a nutshell.

Whatever Lifestage you are in, my advice, enjoy it. Take life by the horns and seize the day! Love the Lord! Love others! Love your family! And smile, Jesus is coming soon. This changes everything!
