Maranatha!

Steve Durkac

The early followers of Jesus, who faced trials, persecution, and uncertainty about their future, took heart by encouraging one another with an Aramaic greeting, “Maranatha!

Maranatha means “the Lord is coming!” or “come, Lord Jesus” as in Revelation 22:20 “Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

It is my heart to encourage the friends and family of CrossHope Chapel, the non-denominational church I serve as pastor in Mobile, Alabama, so this year I am writing out a takeaway thought from my morning devotional study time.

I’m calling these takeaway summary thoughts Sentence Sermons. They are only 1 or 2 sentences that I hope will provide encouragement and insight for living the Christian life as we wait for the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Visit back periodically and you’ll find new thoughts added throughout the year. I am also posting these Sentence Sermons at my Facebook profile and Twitter account, so feel free to friend me and follow me. As always, if you have any questions please contact me.
