HIS PRECIOUS FACE
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV
One joyous day Jesus is coming back for us and we will see His precious face. Think about it. We will have the privilege of seeing the One Who loves us so much He died for us. There is no joy to equal the joy that comes by being in the presence of Jesus. Are you shouting for joy yet?
We read in the Bible. “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalms 16:11). Not only is there joy in the presence of Jesus, we also have happiness when we know Him. You may be saved but do you know Jesus?
Pastor Ira F. Stanphill wrote one of my favorite hymns about Jesus “Happiness Is The Lord”. “Happiness is to know the Savior, Living a life within His favor, Having a change in my behavior-- Happiness is the Lord,” To really know someone, we have to spend a lot of time with the person.
How much time do we spend with Jesus? If we spend more time watching television than we do with Jesus, we are hurting Him and breaking His heart. After all that our precious Saviour has done for us, He deserves to have first place in our heart, in our life and in our time. Does He have first place?
