Revelation 22:12-13,16-17 NLT
“Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne. I am the bright morning star.” The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.
Jesus is coming soon!
This is great news for us who are waiting in great anticipation of his arrival. He is coming to take us to be with him! It’s not such great news for this who do not believe and are not anticipating his return.
We will all give account for what we have done, for our deeds. Our good works do not save us or get us bonus points with God, He has prepared good works for us to do because we belong to him (Ephesians 2:8-10). Doing good things is our response of gratitude to God for what he’s done for us.
Let’s go to Him and drink from the fountain of life, Jesus himself! He is our salvation and he will fill us as we look to him for the good things we are to do! Then, we can look forward to his coming with even greater anticipation!
