A Love God Greatly Study: Preview for Week 1, In The Last Days
Our Verse for the Journey: Hebrews 10:24-25
For this journey our verse(s) come from week 6 of our study. I encourage you to write the verses down on a note card or even several cards so that you have one in your car, your kitchen, your bedroom, your desk at work …. wherever you frequently find yourself. Read it at least 3 times every day, and over the course of the 6-week journey, begin trying to remember the words or phrases without looking. Lean on the Spirit for help – after all, John 14:26 says that our advocate, the Holy Spirit, was given, not only to teach us all things but to REMIND us of all He said.
A Slight Change In Plans:
PREVIEW TODAY – AND – DAY 1 TOMORROW
[I regret this unavoidable change but have been wrapped up with a family emergency for the last 7 days and counting. Your prayers are appreciated for my family- and myself.]
I hope you enjoyed the first week of Come, Lord Jesus, Come. From words of encouragement to insight on the last days and reasons to hold on to the HOPE that we have in Christ – it’s just the beginning of what I believe will be a wonderful journey toward His return. If you haven’t read week one, I invite you to scroll back through the recent posts for this study, beginning October 2, 2022, and glean from them in preparation for week 2 which starts tomorrow.
Your Turn: What was your favorite day or most notable quote or Scripture that inspired you to hold on to the hope that is ours in Christ Jess.
Jesus was faithful in proclaiming His return, which is why in week 2 we will continually read the statement, “I will come” or “I am coming” … followed by the word back or soon. The words belong to Jesus and to every believer that hears them – they offer encouragement and hope. Look for them, soak them up so that you might cling to the hope that is ours in Christ Jesus, and then imitate Him by faithfully sharing them with others. In this He will be honored and others will share in our hope, and to God will be the glory!Me, from the inside-out
WEEK 2 CHALLENGE: Jesus promised that He is coming back. This week, write out how this promise influences how you live.
- Does it make you more intentional?
- Dose it help you to have greater hope for the future?
- Does it place more passion and urgency on your days as you know the time draws near?
Verse For the Journey: How are you doing with our verses from Hebrews 10:24-25? Remember, the Bible says we are “temporary residents and foreigners” and to “keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls.” (1 Peter 2:11-12) To do this in any measure of obedience or success, we must know and hold fast to God’s Word.

I would love to share with you the reason for the hope that is within me, the hope I cling to when times are hard, or life is disappointing, or fears arise. There is no greater source of hope in all the world – of this, I am convinced.
