—I will come again—John 14:3 Merry Christmas! This is the day that many parents have planned for and many children have longed for. As we know from experience and observation, little children feel that Christmas will never come, but it did. For them the days turned into months and the final twenty-four hours seemed like eternity. They couldn’t wait to rip into their presents and finally be able to hold their gifts. But, can you imagine how Mary and Joseph felt on that first Christmas day–knowing that, after the many centuries, the promise had been fulfilled! The Messiah was born. The Infinite became an infant. Mary held in her arms the One who upholds “all things by the word of his power”(Heb.1:3). WOW! But there is more. The same Bible that predicted His first coming also promises that He will come again. That, my dear friend, is our “blessed hope”(Titus 2:13). He won’t come as the meek and lowly baby, but as our King. The Lamb of God will return as the roaring Lion of the tribe of Judah. At long last He will reign upon the earth as the King of kings and Lord of lords! It sounds too good to be true, but it is. It seems that the day will never come, but it will. Are you ready? Have you received Christ as your Lord and Savior? Remember–for the Christian, the future always looks bright if you look far enough ahead. The best is yet to come. Jesus is coming “again”.
