Good morning


Throughout history, the church has seen the weeks leading up to Christmas (Advent) as a time to focus on a weary world’s wait for a Saviour. We reflect on Christ’s first coming, when He arrived as a baby miraculously born to a virgin in Bethlehem. And we look toward His return, someday, as a conquering King, which is described vividly throughout the book of Revelation.


When we think of the final book of the Bible, we tend to focus on the descriptions of heaven and heavenly beings, spiritual warfare, and pronouncements of God’s judgment. But throughout the book are songs of worship. These songs focus our attention on the eternal reality that God reigns over all.


These songs of praise help us cultivate a holy longing for the second coming of our King Jesus. And they give us a glimpse of His glory; the glory of the One whose return we are longing for. “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” (Revelation 5:13). When we read these words, we cannot but rise up and worship Him.


As we head towards Christmas, let us not only remember our Kings first coming. Let us also remember that He is coming again as the all-conquering King.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
