Remembering Jesus' Return


"Do not let your heart be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you may be where I am. You know the way to where I am going" (Jn.14:1-4).

As we complete this short series of things to remember about Jesus, it all comes together with the realization that Jesus will be coming back one day. After telling His disciples that He would be leaving them, today's verses were written as words of comfort. Jesus did not apply a time and date for His return, because He wants us to live each day as if His return is eminent... Jesus actually said these words: "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father" (Matt.24:36). What He wants of us is to live a life that reflects His teachings. He has this powerful desire that we obey Him into salvation. Then comes our service to Him, our giving of ourselves, Our fellowshiping together and our worship. Jesus actually couched His return with these words: "Therefore, keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour" (Matt.25:13). When Paul saw the end near he wrote these words to Timothy: "Now there is in store for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award me on that day ----- and not only to me, but also to all those who have longed for His appearing" (2 Tim.4:7-8). Isn't it a bit ironic that we remember many things we should forget and forget any things we ought to remember. Each Lord's day when we gather about His special table, He says, do this in my remembrance...

Have a great day... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
