Before Jesus was crucified, He informed His disciples that they would see Him again–He would rise from the dead. That must have been hard for them to believe, and yet, He was with them! They witnessed miracle after miracle. They KNEW Him!
They had no choice–they waited.
Jesus’ resurrection from the dead procured abundant life for all that would believe; it is so much more than Salvation! I cannot sum up in a sentence or paragraph all that was bought for us through the horrific sacrifice on the cross, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, King Jesus. In fact, the majority of believers live a lifetime and still do not fully realize the unsurpassed fullness of Jesus Christ in their lives. Maybe that is because we first need to fully grasp the ability to wait!
Abraham waited nearly a lifetime for Issac; Moses waited in the desert 40 years; Noah waited for the flood as he built the ark and then waited in the Ark for the flood to subside, enabling him to return to the earth; Joseph waited in prison; Jesus waited 40 days and nights in the desert and waited 3 days in Hell; and the list goes on and on!
I doubt that there are many of us that like to wait.
Are you waiting for Eternity? You need to realize that Eternity has already begun. Jesus did all that He needed to do, to provide the abundant life intended for you. Now, it’s up to you to procure it!
Waiting is active.
It’s not sitting around waiting for Heaven . . . Yes, if you have received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, Heaven, will be your home; but Jesus offers you Heaven on earth. If you’re not learning about, pursuing, and receiving all the promises found in the Bible, then you are missing out . . . You’re wasting your wait, and you’re wasting your life!
For those that don’t believe in Jesus, don’t repent of their sins, receive His forgiveness and the promise of Eternal life–so sorry for you! Your Eternal Hell has already begun, for you are missing out on a life filled with Promises and the Gift of Love and Forgiveness. You don’t know what it’s like to have fellowship with Jesus and know of His Grace and Mercy. You’ve never felt His Love surround you; basked in His Presence; walked in Divine Favor and the BLESSING! You don’t have security and safety, and the assurance that you will never truly fail, for He’s got your back. You don’t know His perfect Peace!
Well, the Good News is, if you’re reading this, it’s not too late!
Before you reach for another Jelly Bean–WAIT!
Think about your soul. Think about this Eternity that you are living and ask yourself if it is enough. For Christian and non-Christian alike–there is more!
He made a way for EVERYONE, while He waited; but He wasn’t just waiting–He conquered; and in three days He resurrected from the dead–that Hell and the grave have no power over you–ever again!
So, it seems waiting is quite important, don’t you think?
May Jesus BLESS your Resurrection Sunday. May you actively wait on Him–
May you fully offer your life to Him–He’s waiting for you ♥
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” John 3:16-18
“To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5b
