Christ Returning

Christ Returning

Mark 13:26-27

And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.

 

Thought for Today

As followers of Christ, we long for the day when Christ will come and set all things right. As He ascended into heaven in the clouds (Acts 1) so He will return. His angels will spread over the earth and gather His people to Him. Think of how amazing that moment will be. Everything we struggle with now will be conquered. Cancer will be a memory. No one will ever be hungry or oppressed again. Truth, justice, and peace will reign on the earth. I know it sounds like a fanciful dream, but it is more than a dream. The words above were spoken by Jesus. He never lied or deceived, even when the truth was hard to believe. So we can believe Him now and look forward to the great Day of the Lord.

 

Prayer

Lord Jesus, I long for the day when You will come and make everything as it should be. Help me not to be complacent while I wait, but seek Your glory in every moment until You come. Amen.
