Daily I’m troubled by the current events in our world. Evil abounds. Nations against nations, tribes against tribes, people groups against people groups, neighbors against neighbor–us versus them and so on.
While I remain hopeful that the Lord’s people are energized by the Holy Spirit to fulfill its mandate in the world, I’m not a postmillennialist–believing that this world is getting better.
Truth be told–I see the opposite!
So I find myself constantly praying I Corinthians 16:22, “Our Lord, come!” Because I know that when the Lord comes he will right all the wrongs of the world. There will be an end to all this violence against one another. There will be an end to all this injustice. There will be an end to all this evil!
So I pray, “Our Lord, come!”
 The Greek for Come, Lord reproduces an Aramaic expression (Marana tha) used by early Christians.
