IT REALLY WILL BE
“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: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 KJV
Esther Kerr Rusthoi wrote one of my favorite hymns “It Will Be Worth It All When We See Jesus”. I love these words. “It will be worth it all when we see Jesus, Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ; One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase, So bravely run the race till we see Christ.”
It really will be worth it all when we see Jesus. I have been abused and beaten emotionally and physically but when I think about seeing my precious Saviour face to face, it is worth everything I have gone through just to know He loves me so much He died for me and I will see Him face to face.
Carrie Elizabeth Ellis Breck wrote another one of my favorite hymns about Jesus “Face to Face with Christ, My Savior”. ”Face to face I shall behold Him, Far beyond the starry sky; Face to face in all His glory, I shall see Him by and by!” Are you shouting with happiness yet?
We are going to have the privilege of seeing our precious Saviour face to face and we will be with Him for all eternity. Do you know Jesus? If we want to know someone, we have to spend time with the person. How much time do you spend with Jesus? Is He first in your heart and in your life?
