Back in the old days, it took a while for you to boot up your computer. Literally, you could go for a coffee and came back, and your computer was still booting up. My friend, be patient!
Back in the days when you dated your girlfriend, now wife, waiting for her to show up at the designated place and time required patience. You didn’t mind waiting because you loved her so much.
As for Christians around the world, we are still waiting for the appearance of our Lord Jesus Christ. We all know very well that He’s coming again, but we need to be patient! Let’s ponder Acts 1:10–11.
10As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. 11“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!” (Acts 1:10–11 NLT)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Dear Jesus Christ, can You give me the patience to wait for Your Second Coming?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for the patience to wait for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share with a believer your prayer for the patience to wait for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
