Titus 2:13-14 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Several times throughout the year we will have guest speakers come to our church. Missionaries, Evangelists, or other Pastors will come in and God will use them to encourage us in our walk with the Lord. Often when these Speakers come from out of town we will put them up in a local motel.
One year we were having revival meetings at our church. We spent a lot of time and energy promoting this particular week and the well know evangelist. The week had finally come, and I was waiting for him to arrive. The problem was that I thought he had said he would be here at one time, and he thought he said another. Needless to say, I was getting anxious for his arrival. I was sure he was going to be here soon. I checked the motel, I checked the room he was to stay in, I checked my cell phone, answering machine, and caller ID. I tried reaching him, but his cell phone was not on. Therefore, I waited, and waited, and waited for what seemed to be an eternity. However, in all that time in which I was waiting I never once ever thought to give up on him arriving. Never once did I quit praying for his safe arrival and the revival for the next week. Why? Well, it was because, I believed he was coming. He said he would. Sure enough, he did arrive safe, and the revival week was wonderful.
It has been a long time coming. I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting, but I have never quit believing that one day Jesus will return. Why? Well, it is because I believe He is coming as He said He would.
I continue to look for Jesus as if he could arrive today. He could you know? In addition, I will never quit praying for that day or for those who are still unsaved. Jesus said He was coming and friend, that is good enough for me.
