Wednesday

Read Revelation 1:4-8

4 From John to the seven churches in the province of Asia:

Grace and peace be yours from God, who is, who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits in front of his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first to be raised from death and who is also the ruler of the kings of the world.

He loves us, and by his sacrificial death he has freed us from our sins 6 and made us a kingdom of priests to serve his God and Father. To Jesus Christ be the glory and power forever and ever! Amen.

7 Look, he is coming on the clouds! Everyone will see him, including those who pierced him. All peoples on earth will mourn over him. So shall it be!

8 “I am the first and the last,” says the Lord God Almighty, who is, who was, and who is to come.

Think

As John writes from exile on the Isle of Patmos he writes to the group of churches of which he seems to have pastoral oversight; reminding them in difficult times:  "He loves us... He is coming on the clouds... Everyone will see him..."

A reminder to them to stay strong through difficult times.

Pray

Lord help me to remember.  You love me. The day of justice will come.  And all people will see your glory.
