day no. 12,847 continued... john and mary both said, "amen."

Revelation 22:20

He who testifies about these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.”

Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

All who believe in Jesus are excited for Him to come back.  He is coming.  John’s response should be our response: “May it be so! Come soon Jesus. Please!”

Revelation 22:21

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.

The last word of the Bible is “Amen,”

Amen literally means “so be it.”

The Bible ends with the way we should respond with our hearts and heads and hands and hope.

So be it Lord, just as You have said.

That was Mary’s response to God’s plan.  The angel told her what was going to happen.  It was God’s will.  It was going to ruin the life she knew and the life she had planned.  It brought with it uncertainty.  It promised Sovereign eternal security. 

Luke 1:38

“I am the Lord’s slave,” said Mary. “May it be done to me according to Your Word.”

Let that be your response today too.

Merry Christmas!
