Anticipating His Coming
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness (2 Peter 3:13).
WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
A few decades ago, you didn’t have to look far to hear a sermon that carried the message that Jesus is coming soon. Nowadays these sermons are less common, yet we are closer to His coming than ever. If there is anything that we need more of, it’s a greater anticipation of the Lord’s return. The Bible tells us that His return should not hit us by surprise (see 1 Thess. 5:4). We are supposed to be in a place of daily expectation regarding His coming. Like the five wise virgins in Matthew 25, we should have oil in our lamps ready to meet the bridegroom.
That means we should be constantly preparing our lives to meet Jesus. We have to be careful that we don’t let all the busyness and distractions of this life take our eyes off that fact that Jesus’ return is imminent. We must always be able to say, “Come quickly, Lord Jesus!”
