Thatโ€™s sounds funny when I say it, but I did. I had started reading in Hebrews this summer {just as a personal study} and felt prompted to keep reading... right into and through Revelation. Iโ€™ve read it before, but each time is fuller and richer than the last!

Although the Bible ends with the word โ€œAmenโ€ in Revelation 22:20, this phrase from verse 19 is what dots the exclamation point of my most recent mini-journey with the Lord through a section of His Word.

I know this phrase. We used it in the Swedish prayer my family said before each meal. I always pictured Jesus coming to sit at the table with us. โ€œCome, Lord Jesus. Be our guest...โ€

But here, it has a different application for me. One that has set the tone these last few months more so than ever.

Yes, Lord Jesus, come and be our guest. You are welcome here in our homes and hearts. But Lord Jesus, please come back and take us home.

Weโ€™re ready when you are.

I wonder how often my Grandma meant this phrase this way as she bowed before her meal... grateful for Godโ€™s provision but even more so grateful for the future that is promised to us.

Whether today, tomorrow, or after our bodies say good-bye to this current life, we long to be fully in the presence of our Savior and King Jesus.

Come, Lord Jesus. We look and long for you. May we prepare our hearts and hands for your presence today. Yes, amen.

I canโ€™t wait to see where the Lord leads me to study starting tomorrow! ๐Ÿ’›
