Lord Jesus Christ, You reign among us by the preaching of Your cross. Forgive Your people their offenses that we, being governed by Your bountiful goodness, may enter at last into Your eternal paradise; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Why the delay, God? Nothing is more certain than Your judgment of the world...after all, you said so. So where are You?
To be sure, there is a Y-year, a D-day, an H-hour, and an M-Minute. But our assurance in this world, and of the world to come, lies in the sure Word of Christ and in the certainty that is His resurrection.
