Welcoming His Return

So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
Hebrews 9:28
After the Rapture, I think there will be some churches that hold services as they always have. That’s because it’s possible to attend church yet have no real relationship with God.

Jesus said of His return, “Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will begrinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming” (Matthew 24:40–42 NKJV).

Some will be taken, and some will be left. What will happen to you? Are you ready for His return? Are you looking for His return?

To look for Christ’s return isn’t just intellectually acknowledging that it’s true. It isn’t simply a matter of saying, “I know that Christ will come again.” Rather, it means living your life in anticipation of it and being ready to meet Him.

It should touch your heart. It should be something that moves you deep inside. It’s waiting for Him and welcoming His return.

To put it another way, to look for Christ’s return means that you shouldn’t do things that could hinder your spiritual life. We should be on our toes spiritually.

The teaching of Christ’s return should motivate us. And it should comfort us. Hebrews 9:28 says, “So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation” (NKJV). And 1 John 3:3 tells us, “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself” (NKJV).

If there’s anything in your life that should be changed, anything in your life that isn’t right with God, or any sin in your life that you’re practicing, then I urge you deal with it now
