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.
"The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." -Revelation 22:21
This is the final verse in the Bible. The last word. And the last word is GRACE! God's incalculable, immeasurable, un-earnable favor bathes us in the very midst of our failures. We don't deserve it. We can't deserve it. Have you ever failed? There is grace. Have you ever doubted? There is grace. Have you done almost everything right!? There is grace for that too. God's grace is not a respecter of our contributions or failings. That's what makes it grace. Do you desire to follow after Him, but are unsure where to start? Start with grace, and at the end of it all, just like God's word, you will find grace.
"He who testifies of these things says, 'Surely, I am coming quickly.' Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" -Revelation 22:20
This interaction demonstrates much regarding the relationship between Christ and the believer. It is a beautiful picture of promise and expectancy. Our Lord gives the steadfast and sure promise - "I am coming quickly." In that moment the believer does not respond with, "How long is that going to take? What does 'quickly' mean?" The heart and mouth of the believer responds with expectancy - "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" Enthusiastically we long for, and cheer for, the pressing arrival of our Lord. If we become entangled in the concern of how long, we have missed the point. Be ready! Our Lord's word is as faithful as it ever has been. He is coming quickly.
