Watching for Jesus

Several times I have waited for a friend or loved one to arrive at the airport. As I waited, I was excited for their plane to land. There are always many people in airports watching the sky. They hope to see the airplane that they have been waiting for.
As Christians we should be watching for Jesus to return. We know that the Bible is true. The Bible says that Jesus will come back someday. That should make us very excited. Verse 16a of our Bible Reading tells us about that. “The Lord himself will come down from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God.”
It will be wonderful to see Jesus coming. We need to be watching for His return. It could be today, next year or twenty years from now. Only God knows the time when Jesus will come (Matthew 24:36).
Look forward to that wonderful day when we will be able to live forever with Jesus!
