This statement was a mantra of the early church, translated as “Come, Lord Jesus!”
For the early church facing hardship, difficulty, trials, persecution, and martyrdom, this cry was a hope-filled yearning of their desire to be with Jesus.
In a similar vein, Paul in Philippians 4:5, gives a profound statement as a reminder to the Church that “The Lord is at hand.”
Loaded with depth and life-changing truth, this statement must be understood in two ways … both holding tremendous significance for our lives today.
In this episode, Nathan gives an overview of Paul’s statement and invites you to listen to the full-length message on the NRJohnson Sermon Podcast.
