While on campus I saw all theses students waiting..
and growing more excited as they waited.
It was the moment they had been waiting for after campaigning all week for
student government positions.
Hearing the winning names announced of the student president and vice president brought deafening cheers...
and wild excitement among the waiting.
The victors were raised up on the shoulders of their supporters
and carried off in an unbelievable cacophony of music, yelling, and cheers.
It brought to mind that if we respond in this manner after just a few weeks of waiting for a mere human in a leadership position in a university, to be held for the space of one year, what must our response be like when our lifetime of waiting is over and we finally see our Savior, face-to-face, as we worship Him as rightful King for all eternity?
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. I Thess. 5:16-17
And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!” Rev.5:13
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
