Our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, said He would return. His disciples waited anxiously. Finally, realizing that His return would not happen in their lifetimes, eyewitnesses wrote the Gospels so that we would have a record of Jesus’ life and promises.
The Apostle Paul wrote of his revelations. He established the universal church. Paul gave us such great insight into what is to come and how we are to live our lives as followers of Jesus.
During the two millennia since the time of Jesus people have waited. We have looked for signs of the Last Days. Throughout this period people have asked Why is He waiting? What’s taking so long?
We humans ask from our perspective. We are impatient. Some of us are prepared. Many are not.
What’s taking Him so long?
Let’s look at this question from God’s perspective.
Every person, EVERY person on earth, yesterday, today and those yet to come are God’s creation. Each is a child of God. Jesus wants all to come to come to Him.
Jesus gave us the Great Commission to spread the Good News, to take Him to all the nations.
So, God is asking: What’s taking THEM so long?
What will you do today to spread the Good News of Christ Jesus? God’s waiting.
Thank you Rabbi (my Pastor Michael) and my wife for giving me this different perspective.
