Revelation 1:4a–To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come. (NIV)
Which historic character would you like to invite to dinner? That topic dominated our dinner party conversation. I chose Winston Churchill. I’d like to ask him about his World War II strategies over a roast beef dinner. He’d explain how he recovered after the disastrous election that followed.
Auntie announced her favorite as Lord Iswastocome! We thought her choice unfair. Surely, she pulled our collective legs. “Oh, no,”she answered. “Lord Iswastocome is a real, live person, and thankfully everyone in our family knows him.” She quoted Revelation 1:4a.
Excellent choice, Auntie! Who wouldn’t want to share a bowl of hummus with Jesus? We’d discuss His world peace strategies, and how He was able to stand the pain and suffering of the Cross and be separated from God on our behalf. Amazingly, we can do just that, if we have a personal relationship with Him.
John 3:16–For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (KJV)
Prayer: Thank you, God that all we have to do is ask, and you give us that personal relationship with Lord Iswastocome. Amen.
