Walk Towards Easter. 12.
Then everyone will see the Son of Man arrive on the clouds with great power and glory. And He will send forth His angels to gather together His chosen ones from all over the world – from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven. Mark 13:26-27
Q. What expectation does Jesus set up with these words? How does Daniel enhance the picture? ( Daniel 7:9-14) How should we live in light of this promise?
Can you imagine being gathered up by an angel, an angelic being. Close your eyes and allow your mind to become engulfed in the picture of this incredible moment. Multitudes swept up to meet Jesus in the clouds. Pause and meditate on this beautiful image……………………………………………
In Daniel we read of a judgement , but still there is the beautiful picture of Jesus coming with the clouds of heaven. The wages of sin is death, but then there is Jesus.
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He (even) gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. John 3:16 Amplified
So how should we live in light of this promise?
To be loved in this manner……..that our Father in heaven would sacrifice His own Son………live as though there is no tomorrow……….
Do what is right, love mercy and walk humbly with our God. Micah 6:8
