“…looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.”
January 7, 2021
Each time I have walked the shores of the Sea of Galilee, I’ve longed to see Jesus walking there. I would love to see Him walk on the water—planting His footsteps on the sea with the wind in His hair and His garments flowing. I think I’d be a better preacher had I seen Him dying in agony and blood, and had I experienced that Easter morning. Wouldn’t it have been wonderful to see Him ascend into the glory!
I didn’t see Him any of those times, but I’m going to see Him. And you’re going to see Him! There’s a blessed hope awaiting us as God’s children. When He returns, He’s not coming as the carpenter, He’s coming as the conqueror!
When you feel that hope is lost or when you see the world growing dim, thank God for this Good News. We have a blessed hope! He is coming! Ask Him to bring you someone today with whom you can share this particularly Good News of Christ’s return!
