COME, LORD JESUS, COME

COME, LORD JESUS, COME

Isaiah 65:17 (NLTSE) Look! I am creating new heavens and a new earth, and no one will even think about the old ones anymore.

Can you see it?  A new heaven and a new earth that is so amazing that we will not even think of this old one.  Now that should get our priorities in line.  God, our Father, has blessed us with so much in this life.  There is nothing wrong with these blessings, but if all of this life is going to pass away, and the new world that God has in store for us is beyond words, then we need to set our priorities in order.

Too often, we become so earthly-minded, and so flesh-ruled, but God wants us to live by faith and walk by His Spirit.  You might ask, “How do I walk in the spirit?  Is this some twilight-zone type of walking?”  No, to walk in the spirit means to put the things of God first; to set our affections on things above and not on things of this earth.

All that we see, and all that we have, will one day be replaced with something so much better.  This world, as C.S. Lewis states, is just a “Shadowland” of what is to come.  What is to come is so beyond words, that this verse says that we will not even remember this world!

So today, make a decision to think God’s thoughts and to think God’s ways, and you will find out that His ways are so much better than our ways, and His thoughts are so much better than our thoughts.

All of this world’s system is falling apart because people have tried to raise themselves up, and to call themselves gods.  But we, as Christians, know so much better.  We know the earth is the Lord’s, and all that is therein.  So look up!  Our day of total redemption is upon us, and soon we will hear the voice of our great God saying, “Come on up to your true home!”  Amen!  Come, Lord Jesus, come!

Confession:  The King is coming, and I want to be ready to meet Him!  I set my mind and my heart to look to the eternal, and not to live so earthly-minded.  I want to hear my Lord say at His return, “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
