The King Returns by Jonathan Holmes
Read: Acts 1:1-11; Revelation 22:7
We have spent the past 5 weeks focusing on and adoring Jesus as a part of the Advent Season. Primarily we focused on Jesus’ first advent in which He was born of the Virgin Mary in the town of Bethlehem, but we sometimes forget that the Advent Season is about TWO advents. The one we tend to forget about is that upon Him ascending into heaven He promises to return to make all things new.
In Revelations 22:7 John’s prophecy tells us that not only is Jesus coming, it says “I am coming soon.” Are you living your life like Jesus is coming? Or are you living a life that believes Jesus is coming soon?
As Christians we are called to live in the light of Jesus’ promised return. No matter if He returns today or in the next generation our lives are testimonies to the inevitable return of Jesus.
- Are you living a life that believes Jesus is coming soon?
- Ask God to increase your faith in the promises that have not yet been fulfilled.
- Thank Him for allowing you to celebrate Jesus this Advent season.
