Signs of His Return
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” Luke 21:25-26 (NIV)
With a Bible in one hand and the headlines of the day in the other, the signs of Jesus’ return are shouting for attention. We know the time is at hand for Christ to come take His church home, because we are seeing an increase in natural disasters in weather and floods, with a sense of fear and perplexity for the future of our nation.
Yet, our focus should not be on the signs but on the event the signs point toward — the return of our Savior. When we drive down the interstate looking for our exit, we do not stop on the off ramp staring at the sign. Rather we focus beyond that sign toward the reason we needed that exit.
Let’s pray today that we may strengthen our focus on the Blessed Hope and not fall to fear.
