When Jesus came to earth the first time, only Mary and Joseph were looking for His arrival and welcoming Him. But when Jesus returns to earth next time, there will be many of us waiting for Him and anxious to see His face.
Have you considered what Jesus will be looking at that day? His eyes will be searching the crowds looking for you and me because of the promise He made that He would come back again and take us to be with Him. That’s when He’ll gather us up. What joy that will be! We’ll be so glad to see Him. His return will fulfill all of our hopes and dreams.
Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” – John 14:2,3
