“So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him.” – Hebrews 9:28
Have you ever thought about what it will be like when Jesus returns? As I think back to the story of when Jesus was born, I can’t help but think about the Israelites that were living their lives in that day. Just like we are living our lives today, they were WAITING!
They had heard the prophecies, and they knew the Word of God. Now, they were waiting patiently and trying to live their lives faithfully as they anticipated the coming Messiah. And then what happened next in the timeline?
Christ came and the wait was finally over! Christmas happened, and God fulfilled His promise. He did what He said He would do. And He gave His One and only Son for us!
That happened over 2,000 years ago. And yet today, we are still waiting! We know that Jesus came. We know that God kept His promise and sent His Son to change the world. But now we are waiting for His next promise to be fulfilled.
We are patiently waiting, faithfully anticipating the second coming of Jesus Christ. We are in a season of waiting. Hebrews 9:28 says, “So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him.”
Are you eagerly waiting for Jesus’ return? Be honest…is it even something you have thought about? Are you living your life ready for Jesus to return? If not, what changes would you make today to how you are living your life? These are great questions to ask as we eagerly wait for His return.
