Good morning! “And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.” Hebrews 9:27-28 NLT
Waiting can be a bit annoying, for instance, waiting in line, waiting for a video to load, waiting to get cellphone reception, waiting for an email that someone sent, waiting for a fax, waiting for water to heat up and waiting for me to send out these daily messages.
However, don’t be annoyed by the wait for Christ to return. Embrace the Lord’s direction and live life as though the Lord was coming today. As Hebrews 3:14-15 reminds us “You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. ”
Dear Lord, we thank you for the gift of time. The time to live our lives for you and to reach unbelievers so that they will not miss out on your promises. Lord continue to equip us for this journey to reach the least, last and lost. Help us to be faithful in what we believe until the day you come or call us home. Lord send your Holy Spirit to comfort the broken-hearted, to bring peace in the midst of storms and to minister to those who are seeking after you. May you dwell in our households, on our jobs, and give us favor in all that we do. Sharpen our gifts, give us wisdom, discernment and clarity about how to use those gifts, and make us bold while humble to use our gifts to glorify you. In Jesus name, Amen.
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
