Daily devotional: Jesus is coming soon!

Scripture
Look! He comes with the clouds of heaven. And everyone will see him--even those who pierced him. And all the nations of the world will mourn for him. Yes! Amen!
Revelation 1:7 NLTse

Observation
Let us remember that our mortal lives are like a breath of air, our days like a passing shadow (Ps. 144:3-4). Jesus is coming soon! We don't know how much time we have.

Application
Let us not be among those who mourn in shame and regret when He returns! Let us live our passing days knowing our place, and Who saved us, Who we will face (Rev. 1:13-16). We cannot fully comprehend His greatness now, but let us be prepared to meet our Maker and not be disillusioned or caught off guard.

Prayer
Lord, I love you. Thank you for revealing Yourself, for displaying your mighty power and holiness, for offering me your salvation, and for reminding me today to live ready for that day, in perspective of my mortality and your greatness. May I bring honor and glory to your name. I can't wait for the day that I will be able to be with You forevermore and worship you in the greatest worship service beyond anything that could be imagined! Thank you for your grace and mercy, that my name is written in the Book of Life!
