I do not pray that You should take them out of the world but that You should keep them from the evil one. John 17:15
Blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world. Phil 2:15

How often have we prayed for Jesus to return - quickly! Maybe even "Now would be a good time, Lord!"

Depending on your view of heaven, the existence or absence of suffering in this life - you may or may not be anxious for His return.

Regardless of our motivation or desires, as long as we are alive, we have a purpose here. The world has always been "crooked and perverse" and the darker it becomes, the brighter we are to shine! It's not about winning the argument, or even conquering evil - Jesus has already won the Victory!

It's about bringing honor and glory to our heavenly Father.
Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Mat 5:16

The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faints. From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; they have not been closed or bound up, or soothed with ointment. Isa 1:5-6
We are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags. Isa 64:6

Would we appreciate these perfect, glorious days of summer half as much if we didn't experience the dark days of winter? Would the refreshing rains mean as much to unparched lands?

As believers there is no shame when we sin for there is now no condemnation in Christ Jesus, yet, our sin should cut us to the heart - hurt us as it hurts our heavenly Father. It should bring us to our knees - not in shame - but in thanksgiving and gratitude to the One Who bore our shame - the One Who set us free!
You were washed, . . . you were sanctified, . . . you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. ★ The royal daughter is all glorious within. ★ "Your beauty . . . was perfect through My splendor which I had bestowed on you," says the Lord God.

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face to shine upon us, Selah
that Your way may be known on earth, Your saving power among all nations.

Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for You judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Selah

Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You! The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear Him! Psalms 67:1‭-‬7 ESV
