Morning by Morning, October 5 - Jesus Said, "I Will Come Again!"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Help me begin my day embraced by my Father, centered in Christ, and filled with the Holy Spirit. ...
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in Me.... I will come again and will take you to Myself, so that where I am, there you may be also" (John 14:1-3).
Lord Jesus, one day You will come again. One day the promises of the Word of God and Your return will be fulfilled: "For the Lord Himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words" (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). O glorious day! Come, Lord Jesus, come!
But even today -- even every day between this day and that glorious day to come -- You come again and take us to Yourself here in every heart that's open to You, here in every life that's surrendered to You as Lord and Savior. Even today You invite every one of us to open the door of our hearts wide to welcome You come in and abide intimately with us: "Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with Me" (Revelation 3:20). In that invitation, You were speaking to "the church in Laodicea," not just the "un-churched" and "non-believers," and not just to the children of God of that age, but to the children of God of every age (Revelation 3:14).
So come, Lord Jesus! Come today. Come here in me. Come again and again and take me to Yourself (John 14:3). Fill me afresh with "the Spirit of Christ" every day (Romans 8:9). Never stop coming, never stop moving, never stop loving and living and saving and encouraging, here in us, here in the ones who are called by Your name, here in me. "Christ in (me), the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27). "The spirit and the bride say, 'Come!' And let everyone who hears say, 'Come!'" (Revelation 22:17) In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
May you be filled afresh with the Spirit of Christ even day, as He comes again and again in your heart and in our world where we desperately need Him so much , in Jesus' name! Please pray the same of me. God bless you, my friend!
