Come Lord Jesus (Deuteronomy 22; Psalm 110-11)

“The Lord says to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.”  Psalm 110:1

As I think back over the days of my childhood, one of the most significant sermons I ever heard was a sermon taken from Revelation 22: 17 “The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.”  I can still remember the pastor pleading with God.  I can hear those words coming from his mouth, “Come Lord Jesus.”  I still remember the thoughts that I had as a young man.  Here were some of those thoughts:  “Lord, I really don’t know if I want you to come today.  I have a lot that I want to do.  Lord, what will my life be like when you return?  How does your coming play into my plan for my life?”

As I look back I see how selfish I was in those thoughts.  Today, 35 years later I find myself crying out to God, “Come Lord Jesus.”

Question, “What has made the change?”  Here is the answer, “Coming to know Jesus and coming to see the world without Jesus.”  In Psalm 110 we see Jesus in full color.  Notice two things about this Jesus who is coming again:

1.  Jesus is in the place of Lordship, Vs: 1

2.  Jesus will always be in the place of Lordship, Vs: 2-7

As we look at these verses we are reminded of Jesus words in Mk. 12:35-37.  We will bow down to this wonderful Lord Jesus (Rev. 1:4-7).  The longer I live the more reasons I have to bow down to this Jesus.

I want to encourage you to spend some time thinking about the reasons why we should be looking forward to his coming.  Now I am going to encourage you to focus on your day (Is this a day when you need help).  I believe many of us would be greatly encouraged if we would spend time praising the Lord who is coming.  There is nothing that you are facing that will keep Jesus from coming and making all things right.

Even know my heart is eased and my perspective is lifted as I think about my day.  Praise be unto our soon coming king.
