December 31: “Longing for Jesus’ Return”

2 Minute Read + Scripture readings


Malachi 3:1–4:6
Revelation 22:1-21
Psalm 150:1-6
Proverbs 31:25-31


Revelation 22:20 (CSB): “He who testifies about these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’ Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!”


Our Verse for Today is the heart cry of every believer. While we may want Jesus to tarry just a little longer so that a loved one can be saved, we also long for the day when Jesus comes back and we can enjoy Him forever.

Do you love Jesus, friend? Are you looking forward to His return? Do you crave to spend eternity with Him?

I certainly pray that you do! In fact, I pray that your heart and my heart would grow in our love for our Lord even as this year ends and another begins.

  1. The Lord led me to muse on these very things this morning way before I am reading this! The main blessing of being OLD! Knowing it won’t be long—–I will add your musings to my daily reading—-but I don’t usually read straight through the Bible every year, but couldn’t wait to get started again, so I starting ! Kings tomorrow! Already waded through the laws—-thankful for GRACE!
