We worshipped with our McCook home church this past weekend. Their worship service is brilliantly familiar. It was good to sing this song with them. This earth is full of pain and sorrow. His saints are a work in progress and to that we say, "Come, Lord Jesus, come!"
On the historical timeline His bride (the church) has the finished work of the cross but is now anxiously waiting for Him to come. We look for Him to move in our everday, bringing the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven and we look for Him to come and completely finish His Redemption. What faith building hope! What motivation to radically follow Him in surrender and obedience!
2 Peter 3:13, 14
"Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless..."
