OUR VICTORIOUS SAVIOUR
“Which also said, Ye men of
why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you
into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”
Acts 1:11 KJV
Rev. William Marion Runyan wrote a beautiful hymn about our victorious Saviour “Again He’ll Come”. I love these words. “Again, but not in weakness or in sorrow; Again, but not for bitter pain and loss; The Son of God shall come in glory splendid, Again, but not to bear shame’s bitter cross.”
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). What a happy and joyous day that will be when He comes back for us. How I long to see my precious Saviour face to face.
Heavenly Father, thank You for opening Your heart to us and giving Your beloved Son to die for us. Thank You for adopting me into Your family and for the privilege You have given me to serve Jesus. I love You, Heavenly Father. I love You, Jesus. I love You, Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
