Joanne Lowe's Meditations

"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."
Matthew 24:30, 31, 36 (King James Version)
      One day God is going to say to His Son "It's time.  Go get Your bride".  If we will listen and look with our heart, we will hear Jesus shouting with excitement and joy and see the look of happiness on His face.  Our precious Saviour loves us very much, so much that He died for us.
      As much as we are looking forward to being with Jesus in Heaven, He is more excited than we are.  I believe as He hung on the cross in such agony He thought "It will be worth it all when they accept Me as personal Saviour and we will be together forever."  What a precious loving Saviour we have!
      Esther Kerr Rusthoi wrote a beautiful song "When We See Christ".  "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."
      Just as Jesus ran the race when He was here on earth and finished His mission, so we also must run the race and finish the mission that God has given us.  We can't do it on our own.  We need Jesus.  All hail, King Jesus!  Worthy is the Lamb of God!  We love You, precious Saviour, and we appreciate You.
