Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Until Next Time

Acts 1:11- ““Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”

Those of you who have family who don’t live close, may experience what it is like to have them visit for a few days and then pack up and leave until “next time.”

With a wave and a “I’ll be back” they’re off.

You’re never quite sure if they will return soon. Their next visit may be months—even years—away.

But you look forward to it with eager anticipation.

The disciples must have felt that way when Jesus ascended into heaven. After all, He told them that He would return.

Christians look forward to His coming again, too. Many of us would like to hasten the day… to see Him coming in the clouds.

Come, Lord Jesus, come!
