What incentive this is to doing good! It all begins with the exhortation behold. That is, we are to be looking and waiting for the Lord’s soon return. Our hearts are to be plugged into heaven and our eyes are to be scanning world events as they relate to Scripture.
He adds the next bit of encouragement. He says that His reward is with Him. When He comes, He will be bringing with Him the literal kingdom of God. Wherever Jesus is, there abides the kingdom of God; and with that truth comes the excitement and longing that is within the heart of every one of His children. How great it is to realize that Jesus’ appearance is closer now than ever before!
But note the most important feature of this verse: I come quickly. The word quickly means that once you begin to see the end-time events unfolding, His coming will happen very suddenly. With that in mind, are you ready to meet Jesus today should the trumpet blast call us home? Are you waiting for a sign? You need no more sign than to look at your soul’s distress and insecurity regarding His coming and eternity itself. As pastor, as friend, I urge you to choose Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Savior and finally begin to live the life that God desires you to live.
