There may be many thing about which we differ, but there is one thing every Christian looks forward to. Today’s devotional will not only tell you what that is but it should strengthen your faith concerning it. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Acts 1:6-8Acts 1:6-8 English Standard Version (ESV)
6 So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
“He will come. Your fathers thought that he would come in their time. Some of them fancied themselves very wise, and tried to interpret the prophecies which never will be explained until they are fulfilled; and they lost themselves in endless mazes of conjecture. Do not so; but, still, do not fling away your faith because you cast aside your speculation. Believe, and hope, and patiently wait, and look each day for the returning Christ, for he may come ere strikes tomorrows clock at noon, he may come ere the midnight hour shall fall upon the hush of this great city. Ere yet the word I am speaking shall quit these lips, and reach your ears, he may appear, for ‘of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven.’ But it is ours to stand watching, and waiting, and hoping…”
