One of my favorite hymns is called, “The King Is Coming!” It says, “The King is Coming! The King is Coming! I heard the angels voices, and now His face I see! Oh, the King is Coming! The King is Coming! Praise God, He’s Coming for Me!”
The Lord Jesus is coming, however, I don’t believe it will be in my lifetime. The reason being is, He’s a merciful and patient God and doesn’t want anyone to perish.
II Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
People make predictions of His return, but no one knows the month, day or time, only God knows. The question is, “If He did decide to come back today, would you be ready, or would you want to crawl under a rock like some slimy snake?”
If you’d like, say this prayer with me this fine morning. “Lord, I pray the things I do, say and think would be pleasing to your ears and eyes today! I pray I’ll treat others the way I want to be treated! Help me to love the unlovable just the same way you love me! Use me today, to point others to Jesus Christ! Amen!
