We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word and how it applies to us daily.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and my reward is with Me, to give to everyone according to his work." -Revelation 22:12
Be ready. Keep oil for your lamps. Watch and pray. As sure as God's word has ever been, these words are certain. Christ has promised to come again and we wait in deliberate expectation, exercising, building up our faith until that glorious day. He is bringing His reward with Him for those servants who have been found faithfully working. What is the work? It starts with belief, the only work that matters; grows through building up the Body by our service to Christ, dispensing that which we have received; and culminates in a perfected faith when we see Christ face to face and enter into the joy of His kingdom. Help us be ready, Oh Lord! Help us be ready.
"He who is unjust let him be unjust still; he who is filthy let him be filthy still; he who is righteous let him be righteous still; he who is holy let him be holy still." -Revelation 22:11
As Christ's return approaches some people may feel like they can hedge their bets and change allegiance at the last minute. Be warned, our Lord's return will come upon us suddenly, without warning, as a thief in the night. No man knows the day or hour of His return. In that moment each person will be found as they are. If you are Christ's then you are righteous and holy because you are clothed in His unmatchable righteousness. If you find that you are filthy and unjust it is because you are clothed in your own righteousness and have denied the Lord Jesus' petitions to bring you close. Now is the time to cling to Christ, to take His robes. Time is quickly expiring. Do not delay.
