[QTVOTD] What would I change…

“And there shall be no more night; they have no need for lamplight or sunlight, for the Lord God will illuminate them and be their light, and they shall reign [as kings] forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities). And behold, I am coming speedily. Blessed (happy and to be envied) is he who observes and lays to heart and keeps the truths of the prophecy (the predictions, consolations, and warnings) contained in this [little] book.” Revelation 22:5 & 7 ->me: Verse 5 once again talks about the fact that any light separate from the glory of God will be unneeded.  The Amplified and NASB versions have this “for the Lord God will illuminate them” as an interpretation.  I love this!  We will reflect Him and His glory!  Then verse 7 goes on to be words directly from Jesus talking about coming speedily.  Obviously a lot of ‘time’ has passed between the time of John’s vision and now.  ‘Speedily’ speaks more to the surprise of His coming than the timing; this is why He says “Blessed is he who observes and lays to heart and keeps the truths of the prophesy”, meaning that it could be at any moment so live every day as if it were the day that Jesus returns.  Looking forward into this year I see only continued growth in the Lord, more adjustment in being the best I can be for my family, and more impact in my sphere of influence for His Kingdom.  This could be the year of His return!  I should live like that is true -> what would I change about my life if I knew for sure that He was coming back sometime in the next 365 days?
