Good morning, friends -- some encouraging devotionals for today.
Gathering the Chosen
"The Son of Man will send his angels all around the earth.
The angels will gather his chosen people from every part of
the earth." -- Mark 13:27 (ERV)
Those that belong to the Lord will be gathered to meet him. Those who
belong to the Lord will join this celebration whether they are
physically alive or dead. All that belong to him will be gathered
together for the great reunion of the children of God. What a day of
celebration and joy for those who love the Lord. No wonder God's
children have looked forward to this day with great anticipation and
O Father, I can only imagine how glorious the day of Jesus' return will
actually be. I look forward to being reunited with those who have gone
on before me to be with Christ. I look forward to being with those
whose language I cannot now speak, but with whom I will enjoy the
praise and celebration of heaven. Thank you for such a great hope that
rests in my future with Jesus! In his name I pray. Amen.
[S]o Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many
people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to
bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
-- Hebrews 9:28
Jesus is coming back! Are you ready? Are you waiting?
Come Lord Jesus, your bride awaits you! Amen. (see 1 Corinthians
16:22 & Revelation 21:2, 9; 22:17)
