I want the Lord to come again…soon. That doesn’t mean I think I’m perfect and worthy for heaven. But, if what I’ve read in the scriptures are true about His gospel and the covenants we’ve made with each other (and I believe they are true), then I have to believe that He is going to keep His word and save me, since I really am trying to repent and come to Him.
My heart is eager to see Him again, be with Him, feel His love, and watch Him in action as He ministers to my family and friends. Yes…come, Lord Jesus! Come soon!
But, as this song so wonderfully says, we’re bound to meet Him in the furnace of our affliction, long time before we meet Him in the sky.
