Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Lord Who Is, Who Was and Who Is to Come
    I am . . . the Lord who is
    and who was and who is to come,
    the Almighty.
    Revelation 1:8
    Jesus is the Lord Who Is, Who Was and Who Is to Come. He is eternal, without beginning and without end. This description reflects Jesus’ preexistence. He lived before being born as a baby in Bethlehem. From eternity past to eternity future, Jesus is the eternal God. You can trust Him with your life, for He has always existed; He knows all about you; He knows your trouble; and He knows your need.
    Lord, I know You helped people in Bible times, because You lived back then; help me today. I believe You are eternal.
    Jesus will not change the way He relates to His own. The writer of Hebrews declares, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He will do for you—and all believers—what He has done in the past. He can’t change His nature, and He will not change His mind. Jesus can be to you today what He has always been in the past. Moses said, “From everlasting to everlasting, You are God” (Psalm 90:2). Before time began, He was eternal God; after time on Earth is finished, He will still be God. You can trust His promises and His care.
    Lord, I am blinded by my self-absorption; help me fully see Your love and care. I am human and frail; help me look beyond my doubts to clearly see Your presence in my life. When I only see my needs, help me to see Your eternal nature and to worship You. Amen.

    Jesus can help you today as He helped people in Bible times.
