Going to See the King

by Katherine Kehler

This same Jesus, who has been taken from you will come back in the same way you have seen Him goActs 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.

One Response to Going to See the King

  1. Stephen Bernard says:

    For those who have Jesus in their hearts, He is already returned. Jesus has to see that all are told the story of His Kingdom and its way to those who don’t know. Since those who believe in Him are given this task, till the completion of it, He wouldn’t take them to His eternal abode. So we celebrate every day the birth of our Saviour, born in our hearts, reminding us that we are the saved and the Lord is with us-Emmanuel, it makes no difference whether we are here or taken up! But, as St. Paul says, it’s better be here till He calls us, before He comes for the final harvest!
    Thank you. Blessings of the Seasons-Merry Christmas.
