Monday – April 15th – Revelation 22:20-21     -----     
22:20) He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
21) May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy people.
The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for today:

     Happy Monday to you and happy (?) Tax Day as well. It seems sarcastically appropriate that on this Tax Day I want to remind you of our upcoming SunRise blood drive on Monday April 29th from 3:30pm -7:30pm. On of the best, and for many people on of the easiest ways, to be “in mission” is to be a blood donor. The best definition of “missions” is using what God has gifted us with to bless other people. You can sign up to give by going to the SunRise website or app and locate the “events” page. Thank you for making a difference in someone’s life.

     In our pick verses today, John concludes the book of Revelation with both a warning in verse twenty and then what could be considered a fitting epistle-like benediction in verse twenty-one. The ultimate reason for John’s writing is that He who testifies to these things is not himself but the Lord Jesus Christ. The final truth that Christ speaks, as recorded in all of scripture, is that “yes, I am coming soon”. John’s warning to whomever and whenever this verse is read, is that we must be prepared for the sudden and unannounced return of Jesus. What can we not afford to put off until tomorrow if there is no tomorrow? In almost a litany response John speaks for all believers by prayerfully requesting; “Amen, Come Lord Jesus”. To all who arrive at the last words of Revelation and the last words of Scripture, John grants the blessings of God’s grace (undeserved favor bestowed upon us by the generosity of God) upon those who have said yes to Him. This is the peace of God that passes all human understanding regardless of our situations or circumstances. With such peace in our lives, we can patiently wait for what God has next for each of us.
