The Question May Be

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Romans 8:26

The question of what we will do when meeting Jesus is often asked. From Bart Millard's song, I Can Only Imagine, to the wonderings of believers in a moment of rest, we ponder that question. However, perhaps the question may be: What will Jesus do?

We tend to have this picture of the stern and silent God sitting on His mighty throne as we creep forward tentatively hoping to not be struck down. Then we turn to the Lord Jesus who is just waiting for us to do something. There is so much evidence in the Bible for an active, caring, and loving God that one must wonder where we get these impressions. So the question I want to ask this morning is that other one. When we meet Jesus for that first time, what will HE do?

Indeed the meeting Saul of Tarsus had on the road to Damascus should show us right away that there is not some restriction on our Lord Jesus that prevents Him from meeting us right here and now. There is no law set down in the Bible that states: The Son shall not return until that thing you call the Second Coming. Sorry, not there. In fact that whole 'Second Coming' thing is a misnomer, for the second time Jesus came was when He met Saul on that dusty road. We do not even await that Glorious Appearing, for at that time all of God's saints want to be with the Lord Jesus having gone to meet Him in the event we call the Rapture. So, don't sleep, let's go meet Jesus!

Love in Christ Jesus,


P.S. March, coming in like a polar bear today.
