Light for My Path Daily Devotion
[Jesus said] “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:25-28 ESV)
Hymn ELH 538: 5,7 The Day Is Surely Drawing Near
O Jesus, who my debt didst pay
And for my sin was smitten;
Within the Book of Life, O may
My name be also written!
I will not doubt; I trust in Thee,
From Satan Thou hast made me free
And from all condemnation.
O Jesus Christ, do not delay,
But hasten our salvation;
We often tremble on our way
In fear and tribulation.
Then hear us when we cry to Thee;
Come, mighty Judge, and make us free
From every evil! Amen.
Savior, I thank you for the salvation You won for me. Help me not to fear Your Second Coming, but to welcome You with joy when You return for me and all believers. Amen.
