Going to See the King

Morning Story and Dilbert

“This same Jesus, who has been taken from you will come back in the same way you have seen Him go” (Acts 1:11).

We were driving through the city. Our son, daughter-in-law and three-year-old granddaughter were with us. To keep my granddaughter occupied, I began to sing to her and she sang back to me.

One of the songs I sang was,

“Soon and Very Soon, we are Going to Meet the King.”

I sang it a few times and she listened carefully, then she looked at me and said,

“No, Grandma, we are going to the mall.”

Well, at the time we all laughed, but later I thought about what she said. Don’t we as adults often act as if we prefer to go the mall, rather than looking for His return? Are we looking forward to the King’s coming or are we so busy with stuff – running to and fro -that we rarely give a thought that maybe, just maybe, the King is coming back today?

Are you looking forward to seeing Jesus? When was the last time you thought about His return? We get so busy with living that we forget that we are on earth for a short time compared to eternity.

Are you ready? Are you looking forward to seeing Him? If not, I encourage you to read the articles listed below. You can look forward to His return.

Father, I am so glad Jesus is returning to earth. Maybe He will come today, maybe tomorrow. Give us gladness of heart and readiness because we know our Lord is coming soon. Amen.

  1. I love these little stories! However, personally, I “expect” Jesus’ return any minute and therefore, remain “vigilante!”

    Take Care and God Bless!

    I have wanted Jesus to return for the second time at Christmas time for many years. I keep watching!
    We have had several tragic deaths in our area this month. People that never thought for a moment that they would die on that day. Sobering thought.
