I was a bit tempted to doctor the photo a wee bit to enhance the glow, but I decided to give you what I captured. I stood there in awe of God. As we approach the Advent season my heart is conflicted with the joy of giving gifts with the scurrying about that is generally involved in finding the perfect gift. . .and the quietening of my heart in preparation to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
I watched the sun rise, and wondered what the day will look like when the baby Jesus that was born and is widely celebrated in one way or another. . .comes back to this earth.
If we believe that God exists, and we believe that the Bible is true, we also will believe that Jesus is who he said he is, a Saviour to all people.
My heart today is for the person who has never stopped to consider that Jesus Christ will return to the earth as the Bible says. . . .
No one knows when Jesus will return to earth. What we know for sure. . ..according to His word that when he does come we will be surprised.
Jesus himself said. . . "take note: I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me . . .." Revelations 16 : 15
There is no sitting on the fence. It is not enough to believe there is a God, many of course believe there is a God. Either you believe that Jesus was telling the truth about who He said He is. . . .or you don't. If you believe Him you will also believe as I do that He is the only way to be with God in Heaven after we die.
Ask yourself this. . .
Am I excited that Jesus will return? . . .as the Bible says He will.
My heart breaks for those who cannot say yes.
I know that there are many who will say a resounding hearty Amen to this post. . .and together we rejoice.
There might be just one person today who reads this and worries that I may be right about what I believe is true. . .and wonders . . .why can't I have peace like that . . . .why can't I just believe . . .
Pour your heart out to Jesus and ask Him to forgive you .. . .as I have done. Tell Him that you want Him to be Lord of your life. . .that you can't do it on your own. This could be the best Christmas ever for you . .. .because you will have accepted the gift that God sent you!
I am not a perfect person by any stretch of the imagination but I am forgiven. . .and I have hope for my future. I believe in Heaven, and I believe that I will be there . ..
God sent His Son to be our Saviour . . .
Oh. . ..I can't wait for Christmas . .
and every Sunrise that will remind me that He will come again.
Have a wonderful day my friends. . .
